Residents of the Cities of Coral Springs and Parkland are invited to apply to participate in Big Picture: Resilience photojournalism workshops. The workshops are being led by award-winning photo journalist Carl Juste along with C.W. Griffith and André Chung.
Juste and his team will lead a multi-part workshop for fifteen participants exploring the use of photojournalism as a form of self-expression and community engagement, exploring ideas around healing, resiliency, bearing witness and capturing history. Participants will create their own images and tell their own stories that will become part of a catalog and a public presentation. The workshop will take place in 4 two-hour sessions during the summer of 2019; participants must commit to attending all 4 sessions.
As part of the project, Juste, C.W. Griffin and André Chung, all award-winning photo-journalists, will also capture images and stories of the community focusing on documenting the resiliency and healing through the eyes and stories of five of the workshop participants.
The Cities of Coral Springs and Parkland, along with the Coral Springs Museum of Art, are hosting Carl Juste’s Big Picture: Resilience as part of the Cities’ Bloomberg Public Art Challenge program “The Power of Art: Inspiring Community Healing after Gun Violence.” Big Picture: Resilience is one of five hands-on art projects, with the goal of providing opportunities and outlets for healing and social cohesion.
