Wide Angle Youth Media’s Community Voices program teaches young people how to make compelling photographs and tell stories of their experiences. Through free photography workshops throughout the community, the program provides technical training and media production to over 130 students each year.
This program gave Wide Angle our first publication, This Is Baltimore. This book, comprised of powerful student self-portraits, aims to change how youth are perceived and shift the focus on Baltimore’s youth to one of celebration and encouragement.
In the spring, WAYM offers free 2 day 2-hour photography workshops through different Enoch Pratt Free Library locations, holding the photo workshops at participating branches. These workshops operate on first come, first serve basis for up to 12 young people. 2019 spring workshop dates can be found below:
