The Art Institute of Seattle hosted the Society for Photographic Educators Northwest Conference on November 2-5, 2016. Attendees participated in workshops, exclusive gallery openings, and a keynote talk by photographer John Keatley.
In conjunction with the conference, The Art Institute of Seattle is hosting an exhibit in its gallery in partnership with Youth in Focus. The exhibit runs through the end of December 2016. Youth in Focus is a Washington based non-profit that teaches photo journalism to youths from underprivileged neighborhoods. The organization teaches the youths how to take images, then edit and publish them—helping them tell the story of their lives and their communities.
