PhotoWings Grant Opportunity


Everyone has a story. The life-changing experiences along with the everyday moments shape us, change us, and mold us into who we’ve become. We want to hear your story.

Ashoka U is partnering with PhotoWings — an educational nonprofit devoted to using the power of photography to influence the world — to offer a grant opportunity for applicants to tell a story through a photography-based collaboration with other disciplines and departments on your campus or across the Changemaker Campus network.

Participants will practice changemaking by incorporating photographic thinking skills such as: visual literacy, empathy, communication, ethics, resilience, critical thinking, perspective, context, photographic preservation and legacy.

Projects may feature a photography display, a website, multimedia, videos, performance (musical or dance), projections, or print exhibits and can be developed either as an extracurricular initiative or for an in-class assignment.

The grant application is now open and applications will be accepted through Wednesday, September 18, 2013. Selected projects will be showcased at the Ashoka U Exchange at Brown University, and through Ashoka social media channels.
