“Our photographic world is so dynamic and is changing almost by the minute. In a world where everyone’s a photographer and photography is so ubiquitous, the potential for utilizing photography in innovative ways is daunting, exciting and unlimited.
At PhotoWings, we work hard to explore creative and thoughtful ways to utilize photography across disciplines, cultures and generations to further deep thinking and communication. Photographs can help build 21st century skills and encourage social emotional learning (SEL).
We’ve had extraordinary success finding like-minded partners to help further our mission and would now like to engage the Ashoka, SPE, and other educator communities for your ideas. We are purposely making our Flash Grants “up to” $1000 and “up to” $5000 each based on the (depth-reach-complexity-budget) of the applications we receive. We’d like to receive your input on any scale—from a one-off idea to a full-blown project. PhotoWings has supported the creation of toolkits or curricula related to important photography projects that have demonstrated the potential to impact many people and create ripples. The idea is to not only make an impact, but to create something that can be replicated, adapted or serve as inspiration for a new project.
Up to $1000 for an idea or curriculum that utilizes content from the PhotoWings website.
Up to $5000 to fund a photography project that is cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural and/or intergenerational.”
