Our photographic world is so dynamic and is changing by the minute. In a world where everyone’s a photographer and photography is so ubiquitous, the potential for utilizing photography in innovative ways is daunting, exciting and unlimited.
In our partnership grants and grant competitions, we explore creative and thoughtful ways to utilize photographs and photography across disciplines, cultures and generations to further education, deep thinking, communication, 21st century skills and social emotional learning (SEL).
Through grant competitions such as InSights: Past, Present and Future Self Through Photography, implemented in partnership with AshokaU and our own PhotoWings Flash Grant awards, we work with grantees to create toolkits and curricula related to their projects, expanding on their potential to impact many people and create ripples. On several occasions, we’ve given follow-up funding to expand or iterate their projects. We have also incorporated them into other aspects of our work.
We hope that these diverse projects will not only make their mark, but that they will evolve in ways that will allow them to be replicated, adapted or serve as inspiration for new ideas.
