Join photographer and theatre director Myah Jeffers for this free, practical workshop thinking about how we tell stories through and alongside photography.  

Through spending time shooting portraits and delving into writing exercises, this session aims to support you to observe the world around you through a refined lens, and provide the tools and inspiration you need to fine tune the stories you want to tell.  

This free event is open to young people aged 15-24. Find out more about our Youth Programme and our youth collective Duchamp & Sons here.
