Reclaiming Our Authority in Visual Media
Coordinators: Jovelle Tamayo, Tara Pixley, Elaine Cromie, and Diana Diroy
Who dominates our world’s visual narratives? By connecting photographers, filmmakers, documentarians, visual artists and decision makers from around the world, this network gathering will make space for dialogue, strategizing and community building between those who influence the way we see the world. The gathering is open to the women, non-binary and transgender image-makers of color of the Authority Collective, which works to empower marginalized artists with resources and community, and to take action against systemic and individual abuses in the world of lens-based editorial, documentary and commercial visual work. The gathering will include one-on-one networking opportunities like portfolio reviews, as well as strategy sessions, professional development workshops, forums, and discussions led by industry professionals. We will come together to build a support network, challenge colonial aesthetics, re-vision problematic visual narratives and expand our notions of success within the visual media industry.
