As part of its patronage of the arts, the Moran Arts Foundation provides free photographic workshops to schools around Australia.
Established in 2008, the Moran School Photographic Workshop Program is an ideal way to foster creativity amongst school students in years 3 to 12. The workshops aim to introduce children to a new way of seeing via the art of photography, encouraging individual and collaborative creativity, building self confidence and time stamping a wonderful school experience in their minds. The workshops are run in a fun and creative way, providing an opportunity to develop important social skills within the familiar school environment.
All Australian schools are eligible to request a workshop and will be selected based on criteria that aims to be inclusive and equitable. Workshops are held at metropolitan, rural and remote schools every year with thousands of school aged children experiencing this outstanding opportunity.
As a bonus, every child participating in the FREE Moran School Photographic Workshop Program is automatically entered into the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize, student sections K-6, 7-8, 9-10 or 11-12.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in keeping this wonderful and highly beneficial program touring Australia. A donation of $35 will sponsor a child to attend a full day photographic workshop; a donation of $1000 will sponsor a workshop for 30 children.
