Do you love taking pictures on your phone? Are you passionate about selfies? Come join us for a special day dedicated to the craft of photography inspired by our latest exhibition She Who Tells a Story.
She Who Tells a Story brings together 89 photographs taken by 12 women photographers from Iran and the Arab world. Ranging in genre from documentary to portraiture, these evocative images challenge Western conceptions and provide insight into the contemporary social and political landscape of the Middle East.
Taking inspiration from this stunning exhibition, we are offering a day full of activities for budding young photographers. Activities include making your own toy camera to take home, composing sun prints, portraiture workshops with a professional photographer, family tours of the exhibition and photography bingo! Sure to motivate even reluctant photographers to step up their photo-taking game.
