Program Overview

Program Description:
VII is proud to announce the launch of an exciting new education initiative offering storytelling workshops around the world for high school and college-age photographers. Through a partnership with Rustic Pathways—an established provider of innovative, international student travel programs for 30 years—the renowned photojournalists of VII will guide small cohorts of students through an immersive learning experience, tailored specifically for students and young photographers who wish to develop skills in visual story telling.

Starting in Summer 2014, we are pleased to offer "The Maleku and Bribri Project: An indigenous photo immersion into rural Costa Rica," for high school students. We are excited to offer this extraordinary opportunity for adventurous high school students to live alongside two of the remaining indigenous tribes of Costa Rica. In this program, renowned VII photojournalists Ed Kashi and Jessica Dimmock will teach students to see in a new way by exploring the rich cultural and geographic backdrop of a longstanding tribal civilization.

The program will be capped at 16 students to ensure an intimate learning environment and ample one-on-one time with mentors Jessica Dimmock and Ed Kashi. The program, tailored specifically for students ages 15 - 19, will take place June 18 – July 3, 2014.
Setting Description:
For teens who are enthusiastic about hands-on learning and want to develop their storytelling skills, this will be an intensive photography experience. Students will emerge from this educational expedition with valuable experience and a body of work that tells both a personal story of exploration and looks critically at the challenges and strengths of the surviving tribal communities who still live in Costa Rica’s tropical paradise.
Cost:
$4950 + Airfare
