About This Event

About this program
UEP is an annual photography program that invites participants to learn about social issues impacting our city, while learning how to tell stories through photography. The program includes technical photography training and explores topics like poverty, vulnerable kids, and community building. The program is open to all skill levels and at the end of the 10 week program, the participants’ work is showcased at a public exhibit. UEP is a Gen Next program, a United Way initiative that brings together people in their 20s and 30s to do local good.

Registration is $25 and includes 10 weeks of technical photography training, organized evening and weekend ‘Photowalks’ to hone your skills, and admission to the final exhibit at the end of the session. All registration proceeds go towards United Way programs and initiatives.

Why should I sign up?

This is an opportunity to capture the social issues in our city through the lens of your camera. Sessions will include a variety of topics from local Calgary photographers who are passionate about their work and the community. During these 10 weeks, you will have the opportunity to enhance your photography skills, learn about the #UNIGNORABLE issues in our city, and meet a great group of community-minded people. The program ends with an exhibit showcasing your work in June.

When is it?

The program runs from March 11 – May 13, meeting weekly every Wednesday 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. with optional weekend ‘Photowalks’.
