photokunst has been honored to work with Phil Borges and his Stirring the Fire organization, in support their global work for women’s rights and gender equality. Upcoming is an exciting opportunity for photographers to participate in one of their social multimedia workshops, this one documenting a micro-loan program in Vietnam.


Multimedia storytelling empowers individuals and organizations; When used correctly it can inspire entire movements, bring communities together, raise awareness about social justice issues and give nonprofits a vital tool to amplify their message.  STF workshops will serve to help nonprofits that work to promote gender equality, to tell their story and give them online strategies to get that story in front of the audience they need to reach.  Phil Borges explains briefly, “more and more nonprofits need multimedia, so I’ve decided to do these multimedia workshops to provide formal training in storytelling, film, photography, audio, editing, post production, and distribution.”


This workshop will be held December 1-15, 2012 in Thanh Hoa, Vietnam.
