It’s summertime vibes at #PhotovilleFestival’s 2023 Education Programming happening for free this June!
Our 2023 Photoville Education Day includes field trips to our festival stomping grounds in Brooklyn Bridge Park, engaging conversations with professional artists, and a series of lively youth artist panel talks known as the Youth Artist Exchange, all tailored to middle and high school students.
Educators and parents can choose from several session offerings:
SESSION 1: June 6 / 9:30am – 1:30pm
SESSION 2: June 6 / 3:30pm – 6:30pm
SESSION 3: June 7 / 9:30am – 1:30pm
The Photoville Educator Happy Hour is an informal way to connect with educators and art practitioners in the Photoville Education network at Brooklyn Bridge Park for the Opening Weekend Celebration at Photoville 2023!
Spend the Day roaming through the park exploring exhibitions, maybe partake in one of our many free workshops and tours and then come meet up for Happy Hour where you may want to stay for some live music and visual storytelling on the Brooklyn Waterfront.
