Through Our Eyes Photography Education Programme (T.O.E) aims to provide a creative and engaging learning environment in which young people and the wider community can express themselves through the medium of photography. Our vision is to offer people new insight into seeing things from their own perspectives, enabling them to break away from preconceived notions framed by existing visual images and rediscovering the connections between their inner selves and their families, communities, cultures and social environments. Through a variety of workshops and social practice art projects, we seek to define photography in its broadest and most expansive forms and engage with people, especially the younger generation, to explore the possibilities of the medium and inspire their creativity. We also focus on offering training and development opportunities for artist-educators and other arts education professionals as well as fostering sharing of learning and teaching experience and experimental art practices through research and publication.
Founded and funded by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation in 2005, the programme was handed over to and operated by Centre for Research and Development in Visual Arts, Academy of Visual Arts, HKBU in 2013.
