Sohrab Hura Workshop

This 4-day workshop is designed for photographers who are midway through a body of work and are looking to continue it in the long run. Participants will not make new work during the workshop but instead the three days will be spent in exploring new directions and forms that their works could eventually take. Conversations are an important element here and everyone will be encouraged to be an equal participant.

This is the first of a two-part workshop. Sohrab will work with the group from 6-9 March 2017 for the 1st part of the workshop and the participants will regroup approximately the same time next year. In the period in between everyone is expected to continue to work on their projects. The group will be notified about the exact dates of the second part approximately 3 months in advance.

When: 6 – 9 March 2017

Where: Kathmandu, Nepal

How much: Rs 8000 for South Asians and $150 for rest of the world

Application deadline: 15 Feb 2017
