Creative Bootcamp 2022/3
We held our first Bootcamp in 2020, in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, as a two-week online programme. Over the years, the scope and duration of Bootcamp has widened offering participants varied creative opportunities.
The 2022/23 Bootcamp, in partnership with GWR, started in November 2022. The first phase included theory sessions on art, activism and identity. The second phase comprised a series of practical sessions on portraiture, gallery and archive visits around London and Oxford to look at exhibitions on portrait photography, and intensive workshops with acclaimed photographers, including Laura El-Tantawy and Jillian Edelstein.
”Bootcamp has been a brilliant experience. The weekly sessions really made me think about new ways to use photography to explore creative themes. I loved the exhibition trips and it was great to spend time with such a wonderfully creative group of women!
This project was made possible through the generous support of
the GWR Community Fund & Canon
Thanks to all those involved in Bootcamp
from the photographers to the HH team and to everyone who just made the project fun!
