Manifest Drawing Center, in conjunction with the Ohio Arts Council and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, is proud to announce the third annual Envision Project. This special program is seeking applications from high school students interested in learning traditional film photography and making a significant impact through visual storytelling.

We are looking for 12 high school students to participate in this free 16-week, black and white photography program at Manifest Drawing Center’s Community Darkroom in Madisonville. Students will learn the fundamentals of analog film photography while exploring how the photograph can expose and frame the world around them. The Envision Project will culminate with a yearlong exhibition of students’ photographs at the offices of the Ohio Civil Rights Commission in Columbus.

Tuition: FREE
Admission is competitive. Applications must be filled out online and require a letter of recommendation from one academic reference in order to be considered. Participants will be awarded spots based on application review.
Level of Study: No prior film-based photographic experience is required. All materials will be provided, but students are welcome to use their own film camera.

Application Deadline: Friday, September 20, 2019
