5.Adventure / sports photography 

This module recognizes that there are many activities that will engage young marginalized people – in particular, team sports, outdoor activities, and other group activities which promote both physical health and social well being. Here we discuss how photography can be used as part of this work.

6.Exploring place 

This module looks at how different photographers represent place. Many marginalized people will at some point find themselves displaced; re-thinking how we relate to places may begin to address some of the anxieties about displacement and new environments.

7.Mixed media photography

Photography can lend itself to be playfully combined with other media – painting, drawing, textiles, etc  – and is an enjoyable way to make striking images.

8.Social media 

Social media is a major way of sharing photography and has great potential for building communities, as well as potential dangers that we are all increasingly aware of.
