Home > Toronto Workshop > Toronto 2019 – Beginner Day 7 – Graduation

After a long week of successfully learning the fundamentals of manual photography, the students and their families converged at the Aga Khan Museum for graduation day.

The Museum’s state of the art auditorium was the perfect venue for the workshop’s closing ceremonies. Imagine the look on the students’ faces when they saw their images projected in 4K quality on the facility’s enormous screen.

The students and their proud parents were ready for the ceremonies to begin.

Henry Kim, Director/ CEO of the Museum, delivered the introductory remarks. He acknowledged the value and contributions of the workshop and the Museum’s dedication to continuing education.

Fred followed up with opening remarks.

Member of Parliament, Rob Oliphant, was the ceremony’s Guest of Honour. He acknowledged the significance of the workshop and was in awe of the students’ work.

Presentation of students’ work followed. Each of the four instructors introduced their group with continuing remarks from the appreciative and enthusiastic students. A “Best of” slideshow for each group followed.

The grand finale “Stories” slideshow presentation encompassed the students’ week-long photojournalistic assignments including Infrastructure(illustrated with shots from the Toronto Transit Commission/ TTC – train stations and train repair/ maintenance), Health and Well Being(images captured in conjunction with Go Green Youth Centre and Believe to Achieve), and Zero Hunger(working with Second Harvest and Summerlunch+). Ending the slideshows was a fun set of “Behind the Scenes” images delighting the students and audience.

The ceremony concluded with the presentation of graduation certificates and prints of the students’ best images.

After the ceremony, the crowd filled the Museum’s atrium to enjoy refreshments and view the students’ prints.
