One worthy picture. 1000 words.
We provide exploratory workshops around a question with the help of tools from the world of photography.
Each workshop is custom designed according to the needs and wishes of the organization. They enable employers and colleagues to become more familiar with one another on a personal level and as members of a group.
The workshop is built after meeting with the client to understand the organization’s needs and to clarify the question to be explored.
For example, What color do I bring to management?
Leadership for me is…?
What is unique or different about me that I contribute to the staff?
Mi/Li workshops offer a brief getaway from the routine of day-to-day life, bolster motivation and take you on a personal and collective journey. We transform a smiling moment into ongoing conversation, reflection and speculation.
Part One: Making Acquaintance and Getting Inspired
In a world that is accustomed to seeking inspiration from the outside, our workshop says, “Come, let us find our inspiration from within”.
We begin the day by making acquaintance with the world of photography and drawing inspiration from it. Iconic Images by renowned photographers’ are projected for the group on a large screen to spark contemplation and as a starting point for discussion about the singular qualities that each work embodies. As this conversation transpires, participants are encouraged to begin identifying something of themselves in the various photographic styles and images.
Part Two: Practical Tools for Photography
Participants get acquainted with practical tools and knowledge about photography as a medium. For example, How do you photograph intimacy? How do you send a message to viewers with a photograph? How do you photograph beauty? How do you stage a photograph?
Part Three: Personal / Group Task
For this part we set forth from the studio together to perform our task using our cell phones. To kindle the ongoing personal creative process, we visit studios of neighboring artists and wander the streets surrounding the studio. Our studio is located in the heart of the Tel Aviv art scene, where leading artists forge their creations indoors as well as on the surrounding concrete walls.
For the task, participants use the tools and knowledge they received to explore and photograph the answer to the question of the workshop.
Part Four: Analysis of Images
We gather together to analyze the pictures we photographed for the task. This stage of the workshop generates meaningful reflection, learning and discovery among participants.
Part Five: Studio Photograph
Portraits are taken in the studio with subjects holding up a word they have written on handheld chalk boards. The portraits capture the moment of discovery and becomes a cherished keepsake of the event.
* The workshop includes a digital page with pictures documenting the day.
