Workshop of Critical Image Analysis
RUIDO Photo carries out educational activities with young people and adults in formal and non-formal education centres as part of the awareness and education campaigns that accompany any journalistic research project. Using the potential of the visual arts, it aims to contribute to the understanding and critical reflection of social phenomena such as human rights violations, migration and refuge.
Its aim is to educate the way we look at this issues by learning to interpret critically the images and discourses they communicate. The workshop is carried out in a participative manner and is supported by photographic material and the 360º videos produced by RUIDO Photo in the field in order to bring this distant reality closer to the participants. Through the visual content, the activity encourages to talk about the injustices and violations of human rights and promotes a collective reflection on the responsibilities, consequences and possibilities of change linked to these phenomena.
Laia Gómez-F., social educator and anthropologist, is in charge of developing and carrying out the educational workshops. At the moment, the main workshop we have is on the understanding of the migratory phenomenon through projects such as The Backway (the migratory route from Africa to Europe) or On the Road (about Central American migration to the US).
