Unapologetically Me: photography workshops
Wed, 26 Oct 2016, 18:30 – Wed, 2 Nov 2016, 17:00 BST
Edinburgh University Students’ Association and the Women’s Liberation Group invite all women and non-binary folk on campus to Unapologetically Me: a photography campaign designed to create an environment where we, and no one else, make the deliberate choices about how we present ourselves.
All too often images of women and non-binary folk are subject to unrealistic sexist beauty standards, as well as racist and fatphobic ideals. Our bodies are objectified and sexualised without our permission, and it feels like everyone gets a choice about how we are portrayed except us.
We want to create a space where we can choose to cover up, go topless, wear clothes regardless of fashion trends, wear makeup, glasses and jewellery, or don't. No harassment, judgement or oppression. We want to be us without apologising for it.
If you're on board, sign up to one of the photography workshops to learn how to use cameras and editing software, followed by the chance to take your own photo . Photos will be exhibited at the launch event in the Students’ Association on November 25th and remain there until mid-December.
Prior knowledge is not necessary but if you do want to bring along a digital camera and/or a laptop with photo editing software, go for it!
