In this online workshop you will develop your abilities, skills, and knowledge of working with societally marginalized communities on creative projects. Ann Rosen has photographed and taught photography to women who have been formerly homeless, living in shelters or temporary permanent housing for several years. Creativity has been proven to be an effective way to benefit those who have been marginalized due to their gender, citizenship status, economic status, or a physical or mental disability (as defined by society). For this class, students will view PowerPoint presentations describing Rosen’s classes as well as video footage of an actual class. Together they will look at the artworks, stories and books created by these marginalized women. Inspired by these works, students will make photographs, artworks and books reflecting their own private lives. Thus, they will replicate the work done by those participating in the shelter classes to prepare for leading a workshop of their own.

This workshop is available for 3 undergraduate or 2 graduate credit hours from SUNY Brockport.
