Education Day at the Photoville Festival

Photoville Festival Education Field Trips happen every year!



#PhotovilleFestival’s 2024 Education Programming happened for free this June!  

Our 2024 Photoville Education Day included field trips to our festival stomping grounds in Brooklyn Bridge Park, engaging conversations with professional artists, and a series of lively youth artist panel talks known as the Youth Artist Exchange, all tailored to middle and high school students.

Educators and parents have several session offerings (morning and afternoon) to choose from.

In 2024, there were sessions on June 4th and 5th. Sessions include a picnic in the park with pizza and water provided.  



Stay tuned for videos of artist talks and Youth Artist Exchange panels from the #Photoville2024 Education Programming!
Each year, the Education Day program includes the following:


Artist-led Exhibition Tour
Your students view and discuss a diverse group of photography exhibitions, ranging in topic, theme, and photographic approach.


Youth Photographer Panels
Your students hear from local youth photographers, to learn how their peers tell visual stories, and how they can get involved themselves.


Educator Resources and Professional Development
Educators receive a Resource Packet with images and discussion questions to teach from Photoville exhibitions. Browse & download some of our past resource guides in our education resources library.

Educator Happy Hour

Each year at the festival, the Photoville Educator Happy Hour is an informal way to connect with educators and art practitioners in the Photoville Education network at Brooklyn Bridge Park!


Spend the Day roaming through the park exploring exhibitions, maybe partake in one of our many free workshops and tours and then come meet up for Happy Hour where you may want to stay for some live music and visual storytelling on the Brooklyn Waterfront.


The Photoville 2024 Educator happy hour was held on June 1st, opening weekend.


The first drink is on us!
Our Festival education program is made possible thanks to our partners PhotoWings and the New York City Mayor’s office of Media and Entertainment.
