PhotoWings and Ashoka U asked grant recipients to engage a broad range of university stakeholders (such as students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees). Grant recipients are building connections on and off campus, including a wide variety of departments and disciplines on their campuses (e.g. photography, psychology, sociology, art, design, English, theatre, music, communication, journalism, history, film, cultural anthropology, engineering, and international relations).
All projects emphasize the use of images (existing photographs or ones made for the project) to communicate a story or idea. This includes, but is not limited to, a photography display, a website, an exhibit, multimedia, videos, performance, (musical or dance), projections, print displays, and/or a photo collage presentation.
The projects embody and explore some of the big ideas around photography to tell powerful stories and understand valuable concepts: visual literacy, empathy, communication, earning trust, ethics, resilience, critical thinking, perspective, context, photographic preservation and legacy.
