Image Café is a participatory community and salon for visual storytellers, multimedia artists, filmmakers, writers, editors, and creative technologists.
You want to make a difference in a post pandemic world and shake things up. Members are encouraged to explore all visual storytelling mediums from analog to digital, from still to moving image, from print to multimedia, to think differently and to make a difference.
The Image Cafe community will enjoy monthly soapbox socials, critique groups and online portfolio reviews. Participants will share their ideas, skills, criticisms and passions with each other in small, informal groups. Mentors will provide feedback and advice. Presentations and discussions happen occur organically in response to participants’ interests and projects.
Members can participate in and teach skill building classes and workshops, all provided by members and mentors. Each member will be asked to lead at least one session or workshop and/or organise a guest speaker, book signing or artists talk. The goal is to a playful, experimental, cooperative and collaborative environment with a serious purpose, to do good..
In addition, interested students have the opportunity to take structured classes with Screen Arts School at discounted prices.
Screen Arts Media will publish community members work on a regular basis, through zines and online exhibitions. We can code and can help up think digitally.
We are committed to outreach to underserved visual storytellers from all around the world. 60% of membership fees will be used for scholarships.
