Target audience for the Symposium

We are tailoring the weekend symposium as an educational and community building event that is approachable by all levels of practitioners including students, casual and enthusiast photographers, photography followers and also related practices.

We particularly want to reach out to practicing photojournalists, socio-documentary photographers, photo-activists and social commentators, photography and media studies students, NGO personnels and keen hobbyists to join us and build a community. We would also like to cater to fine art photographers who are developing photo projects that promote awareness and provoke social discourse.

This symposium may be useful to young photographers and students who feel drawn to certain causes and wish to develop photo projects to create awareness, but may need some guidance on strategies and development ideas that may be useful in starting, progressing or completing their projects.

Objectives

To share strategies and processes on how to identify, research and develop photo projects that involve social change elements, with first hand experience sharing from established and practicing photographers, film makers. Fund raising, targeting the right audiences, working with charities. Modes of dissemination – exhibition, book, online, effective awareness campaigns etc.

Ethics and moral issues encountered during social change projects will also be discussed.

Focus Groups

Delegates are invited to join small Focus Groups during the weekend, to discuss, share and provide feedback on certain ‘topics of the day’. We value dialogue and discussions and would encourage frank and meaningful exchanges that will benefit the community.

All events are held at The KL Journal Hotel, 30, Jalan Beremi, Bukit Bintang, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Phone: +60 3-2110 2211
