This November SBS will launch its brand new Learning Hub, housing the very best of our free educational resources whilst providing a unique platform for teachers, schools and students to share their classroom creativity.

To kick off the project and celebrate Australia’s vast diversity of school communities, we’ve teamed up with the Australian Centre for Photography to offer you the opportunity to show the rest of Australia what makes your school special.

Four diverse, unique and remarkable high school communities will take part in an engaging on-site mobile phone photography workshop led by Australian Centre for Photography educators. Photographs from this workshop and the school visit will feature in a new online SBS gallery aimed to bring together the learning community, in addition to an exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography’s galleries in Sydney.

THE WORKSHOP

Acclaimed documentary photographer Marco Bok and emerging photo-artist Benjamin Stone-Herbert will teach students to explore composition, light and scale to produce images for exhibition online and in the gallery. Using their mobile phones students will discover fun and simple techniques to enhance their individual stories and showcase what their school means to them. Students are encouraged to share their images and their talent online and continue to practise their new photographic skills with today’s most accessible camera, the mobile phone!
