ACP Lecture Series: Everyday Africa w/ Austin Merrill Monday, May 1st, 6:30-8pm

Midtown Arts Cinema
FREE - Reserve Seats on Eventbrite

"Everyday Africa is a collective of photographers using imagery to combat common cliches and misperceptions, aiming to demonstrate that Africa is far more than a place only burdened by poverty, disease, and war. We find the extreme not nearly as prevalent as the familiar, the everyday."

Created by Austin Merrill and Peter DiCampo in March 2012 while in Ivory Coast (on a reporting assignment funded by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting), Everyday Africa has more than 320,000 followers on Instagram, has been exhibited and published internationally, and has developed an educational curriculum for middle and high school students. It has grown into a worldwide community of Everyday photography feeds, from Asia to Latin America, Afghanistan to Australia, Rio to the Bronx, along with issue-based feeds that include Everyday Incarceration, Everyday Black America, and Everyday Climate Change.

Austin will present the Everyday Africa project, book, photography and storytelling, and the worldwide efforts of The Everyday Projects to combat misperception, including Everyday Atlanta, soon to be the newest member of the Everyday family.

Copies will be available for purchase and signing by co-editor/co-founder Austin Merrill!

ACP Festival Guides & Getting Ready for 2017!

There's no time like the present to think about how you want to participate in ACP 2017!

If you're planning an exhibition for later this year, taking a look at ACP Festival Guides from past years can be a big help. There are lists of venues you can contact, and generally, they offer a great way to understand the scale and scope of what it means for Atlanta to Celebrate Photography!

Here are the last few years of Festival Guides, in PDF form. Have a look - we hope they inspire you to participate in 2017. We'll be open for submitting your listing to the ACP Festival Guide in May, and the deadline will be in June.
