Green photo. Alternative photography methods in a rehearsal for change

Training Course

13-22 October 2023 | Dobczyce - Kraków, Poland

The project aims to empower youth workers with fewer opportunities as leaders of their communities through creative workshops of alternative photography.

The goal of " Green photo. Alternative photography methods in a rehearsal for change" training course is to create opportunities for raising self-esteem, ecological and intercultural awareness, improving digital skills and boosting more active citizenship.


Most of the time will be dedicated to artistic workshops: upcycling different materials to create pinhole cameras, experimenting with photography and learning cyanotype printing process. Alternative photography processes will be connected with digital methods, so there is opportunity to acquire new digital skills.

We prepared outdoor tasks: experiments with pinhole photography and photo quest in Kraków, in reference to the social dimension of photography.

Participants will work in various teams: all the project will be documented by media corners, daily helping hands teams will support activities organisation, and national teams will prepare follow-up activities.

To sum up the activities, participants will create digital exhibition of their artworks.


The focus is put on participation, active involvement, sharing of thoughts and feelings, learning by doing, group work and the intercultural dimension. Creativity and a variety of methods are crucial in our approach. The main methodologies are learning by experiencing, reflective approach and the artistic approach. The intercultural setting is crucial during mobility as a working/living/leisure experience.

During the training, participants will take part in the workshops based on non-formal educational methodology as working in pairs, groups, brainstorming, reflecting, experimenting, team building, peer learning, self-reflection, group reflections, and role-play.
