Signup Deadline: July 6

This summer, the USF Contemporary Art Museum, part of the Institute for Research in Art in the College of The Arts, will offer Breaking Barriers, an intensive five-week online photography workshop for military veterans.

The course will be focused on memory and personal experiences and will be led by photographer and educator Selina Román.

Breaking Barriers is an initiative to expand access to the arts for military personnel, veterans and their families. The program will give veterans the opportunity to have a voice through art making, and interface and integrate with both the local civilian and larger veteran communities.

The workshop, held online, will meet Fridays, 1–5 pm from July 10 – August 7.

Breaking Barriers is free to veterans, and no previous experience is required.
