Towards a philosophy of socially-engaged photography

April 22, 2017
3:00pm  -  3:15pm
Gallery 400 Lecture Room

Fereshteh Toosi served as the inaugural Dammeyer Fellow in
Photographic Arts and Social Issues, a collaboration between Columbia
College Chicago and the Heartland Alliance, a global social justice
organization. The result was an experimental pedagogy project
featuring a series of hands-on workshops for residents of a supportive
housing apartment in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. Fereshteh
will recount her fellowship year of enacting process-based methods of
socially-engaged photography.
