NOOR, the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Slovak Press Photo have joined forces to organise a tuition-free, advanced photography workshop for visual storytellers from the Visegrad countries (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland) entirely dedicated to creating impactful visual stories on the climate crisis.
The Visualising Climate Crisis Workshop will be led by NOOR mentor, multi-award winning photojournalist Kadir van Lohuizen, who has worked extensively on covering the effects of the climate crisis, and Esther Horvath, award winning Hungarian photographer and a Fellow at International League of Conservation Photographers. The workshop will empower a selected group of 12 participants from four Central European countries (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland) by facilitating the development of their journalistic, investigative skills and visual mastery over the photographic medium.
The workshop is divided in two phases: a physical 4-day intensive workshop, and an online mentoring program lasting for a minimum of 3 months during the production phase of the visual stories.
At the end of the training, the produced projects will be edited and curated into an exhibition that will open in Bratislava in June 2023 and will travel between 2023 and 2024 to Hungary, Czech Republic and Poland.
