From the organizer:
“Get ready for Click DC – a month-long celebration of photography in the DC area that has a little bit of everything for local photographers and photography lovers during June.
The inaugural Click DC photo festival is a grassroots effort of more than 20 photography organizations, collectives and galleries that will host exhibits, talks, workshops and photo walks throughout the month. You can find the full schedule of events at www.clickdc.org.
The celebration officially kicks off with Focus on the Story 2019, a series of talks and presentations starting May 31 on the George Washington University campus.
The lineup of speakers includes acclaimed photographers Ruddy Roye, Andrea Bruce, Lucian Perkins and Sharon Farmer, among many others. The opening party that night at Dupont Underground will include photo projections, a silent auction of prints from DC-area photographers and music by DJ Kenny M. Info and ticket information can be found on Facebook and Eventbrite.
Events during June include free photo walks for casual photographers, paid workshops for those looking to build their skills and happy hours open to all. There are also a wide range of photo shows for art lovers that include street, fine art and architectural photography exhibits.”
