Green Lens is a photography and video competition open to 16-25 year olds across Birmingham in Spring and Summer 2018. Free workshops are taking place across various venues in Birmingham to give opportunities for young people to learn from two of Birmingham's leading photographers, Kate Green and Andrew Jackson.
Organised by ecobirmingham in collaboration with Ampersand Projects, the project invites young people to have their voice heard regarding green issues that are important to our collective futures. The winning entries will be exhibited in the community gallery at Mac Birmingham in September 2018.
Green Lens was developed in collaboration with a panel of young photographers from Birmingham City University and University of Coventry.
