Batman, Mardin, Şırnak, Van, Yüksekova

Instructor Trainer: Özcan Yurdalan
Workshop Instructors: İshak Kalaç, Ergin Sarı, Lütfi Kavak ve Sabri Özdemir

59 participants in a 10 to 18 age group took part in photography workshops realized in Yüksekova, Batman, Mardin, Şırnak and Van from 15 June to 15 September 2011. As part of the process, meetings were held at least twice a week with workshop participants, and as part of the ‘remembering with photography’ theme, the methodology of visual memory was shared with students, focusing on “learning with children”. The aim of the 3-month workshop was for the children to critically look at, think about and discuss their own areas of living and to tell the stories they derive from the regular flow of everyday life using photography.
