Smartphone Photography Workshops
An amazing group of eager, dedicated and creative young men from ten different nations has formed to be part of a month-long series of Photography Workshops. Rough cut media, a nonprofit from Philadelphia, USA, is dedicated to increasing access to media creation tools and professional instruction both locally and globally.
Young, single men are consistently de-prioritized in this crisis, and are significantly impacted by fear campaigns sweeping Europe on mainstream and social media. As a result, older teenage boys and single men are left behind in camps throughout Greece and the Balkans. On lesvos, Greece, they are forced to call moria refugee camp an indefinite home. One look and you can see why they consider it a prison.
Despite the deplorable conditions they live in each day, young men brave the heat and walk over an hour each way to be with us at One Happy Family Community Center (@OHFLesvos). Here they have a chance to take language classes and study media creation with rough cut to ensure they have an artistic outlet and develop tangible and modern communication skills.
