5 CORNERS COLLECTIVE

EMPOWERING THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

WHAT WE DO

5 Corner Collective is a non-profit teaching and exhibition collaborative founded by five graduates of the University of Hartford's MFA program in photography.  We partner with community groups to teach photography and filmmaking in underserved areas.  Our teaching artists provide their students with the tools they need to tell their own stories.  We then create opportunities for participants to share their work with their communities.  In so doing, we encourage participants to celebrate their strengths and confront their challenges - and to grow as artists, advocates and community members.

OUR WORKSHOPS

We structure our photography and filmmaking workshops to meet the goals of the communities in which we teach.  The workshops may vary in length from a few days to a few weeks and are provided free of cost to the participants.  We provide each of our students with all necessary equipment for the duration of the workshops.   To learn more about our workshops and to see the work of some of our students, click on the links below.
