Réseau Canopé and An Eye For An Eye team up for the 15th Clicks and Classes!

“Clicks and Classes”, a national project run by Réseau Canopé with help from the Ministry of National Education looks to educate the youth in photography.

In partnership with An Eye For An Eye, an organization that connects children across the world through photography, Réseau Canopé gives “Clicks and Classes” international scope. The partnership joins the Rencontres d’Arles beside Réseau Canopé for the exhibition “Clicks and Classes” 2018.

The theme of 2017-2018 is “Exchange”.

Classes from South Africa, Bolivia, Burkina Faso and Cambodia have pooled their creativity with their French counterparts on a photographic work on this theme.

Groups of primary, middle and high school students think about photographic production in workshops led by a teacher, a photographer and an organizer from a cultural institution. The students then imagine photographs based on their environments, cultural identities and personalities.

The teachers use Viaéduc, a professional social network, to communicate and work with one another. Teamwork not only boosts creativity, but also fosters mutual understanding between cultures. The project of discovery and exchange is completed with each team presenting a common proposition for exhibition at the Rencontres d’Arles.

Clicks and Classes in figures:
Over 200 students
11 photographers
5 cultural institutions

The exhibition will be held from 2 July to 23 September.
