The European Cultural Centre, in collaboration with Urbanautica and Paris College of Art will host on November 23rd the first International Conference on Photography & Education “Blurring the Lines”, at Palazzo Mora, Venice. 

Photography has evolved since its invention, and the use of different processes and tools goes along with its evolution. This event aims to reflect on the medium of photography asking where photography is going nowadays. Indeed, with the invention of digital photography, the medium has become more accessible and less-technically craft-based, which demands a complete re-think of its definition and aesthetic approach. An international group of experts has been brought together to discuss the topic and to propose new scenarios.

The event is free entry. Reservation is welcome at
