LET’S DISMANTLE THE SELFIE!
LET'S DISMANTLE THE SELFIE!
MEETING AND RELATING THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY; PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS AND AN EXHIBITION OF THE SELF-PORTRAITS OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF FIGUERES
I have worked on the project ‘Let’s dismantle the selfie!’ with some very beautiful and creative young people from Figueres, within the framework of the Environmental Education Plan.
This is an open and innovative educational cooperation initiative that aims to achieve educational success and contribute to social cohesion through equity, intercultural education, the promotion of coexistence and the use of the Catalan language.
ARTISTIC EXPRESSION HELPS YOUNG PEOPLE DISCOVER THEIR SKILLS
Artistic expression helps young people to discover their skills and talents and can put them at the service of society. Within the format of this project, young people can interact through art.
Photography is the main tool;
Self-portraits contribute to how we look at ourselves and how we define ourselves. It also promotes dialogue and knowledge about each person of the group through their self-portraits.
AN EXPO WITH THE TITLE ‘KALEIDOSCOPIC SELF-RETROSPECTIVE’
The young people who participated in the workshops wrote these sentences:
“I FEEL IMPORTANT AND I AM THE PROTAGONIST WHEN I AM PHOTOGRAPHED; AND BEHIND THE CAMERA I AM A PROFESSIONAL”
“I’VE LEARNED TO LOVE MYSELF, TO VALUE MYSELF AND NOT TO BE ASHAMED”
“I SEE THE WORLD AS NEW AND WITH MORE CLARITY THROUGH THE EYE OF THE CAMERA”
