ISSP 2019 - first thematic edition!
We are very excited to announce that in 2019 the International Summer School of Photography will be moving to a new location and introducing its first thematic edition - Photography and the World!
Dates: 12 – 20 July 2019
Location: Zaļāsmuižas pils Grünhof, Jelgava District, Latvia
The six ISSP workshops will explore the role and position of photography in relation to political activism, ecology/environment, community engagement and the ritual/spirituality. The event will be a horizontal learning experience involving not only photography and visual art experts but also resource persons from other fields – activists, writers, environmental scientists, visual anthropologists. Together, the participants will try to answer questions like - What role can art/ photography play in relation to the events and processes happening in the world? What are the ways art can contribute to the societies we live in? What is the role of the photographer – as a professional, an activist, a member of the community, a responsible human being?

Darbnīca tiks integrēta ISSP pasākumā un tās dalībnieki apgūs fotogrāfijas pamatus, mācoties izteikties par sevi un pasauli ar attēlu palīdzību, radot personiskos foto stāstus. Darbnīcas rezultāti tiks izstādīti ISSP gala izstādē Kuldīgas Mākslas namā.
