The Market Photo Workshop and Sibikwa Arts Centre is pleased to announce the Sibikwa Total Photography Training Project 2018, a ten-week introduction to photography which will be held at Sibikwa in Benoni South.

This training project is specifically targeted at out-of-school-out-of-work youth between the ages of 18 and 26 and will give eight participants the opportunity to gain the basic technical and visual literacy skills of digital photography.

Participants will be trained in developing their own stories and conceptualising them in  photographic projects in and around their communities.

All eight participants will be assisted with compiling and finalising a photography portfolio and get helpful information on how to build on earlier instruction in skills and topics of relevance for their future careers.

Those interested in participating in the Sibikwa Total Photography Training Project 2018 are invited and encouraged to attend an introductory  meeting on Tuesday 22 January at 10h00 at the Sibikwa Arts Centre, corner Liverpool and Bolton Roads  in Benoni (GPS: 26.1992° S, 28.3142° E)

Please note that preference will be given to those living within the Ekurhuleni Metro.
