Please join us on June 8 from 7– 9 p.m. for an evening of interfaith dialogue through the medium of photography. Interfaith Photovoice is an arts-based approach to interfaith understanding that invites participants to respond to a series of questions with their own photographs. We will use amateur photography and group discussions to identify needs, raise awareness, and encourage change.

The topic of the event will be “Bridges and Barriers to Belief and Belonging.” Come and share your photos with us.

What is photovoice?
Interfaith Photovoice combines sociology and amateur photography to help people have conversations about religion and spirituality in everyday life, the challenges they face in their communities, and the changes they would like to see. A typical project unfolds over several weeks with a group of people who identify, photograph, and discuss shared experiences, needs, and concerns. Projects conclude with an exhibition in which participants share the stories behind their photographs with their community

What should I expect?
Interfaith Photovoice® founder Roman Williams will facilitate a photovoice activity in which participants use their own photographs to have a conversation about bridges and barriers to belief and belonging. The goal is to introduce your group to photovoice by experiencing it. He will also present an overview of photovoice and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Do I need to be a (good) photographer?
These days everyone is a photographer. If you used your mobile phone to snap a photo in the last week, you have the experience needed to participate. You just need to be willing to use a camera to tell your story. (More information about the photographs you will be taking / submitting will be sent following registration.)

Who should I contact for more information?
