Ashoka U will partner with PhotoWings for a unique, funded opportunity called “InSights: Past, Present, and Future Self through Photography.” Faculty, staff, or students (or teams with a combination of perspectives) are eligible to receive $1,000–5,000 grants to host interactive photography-based projects to spark dialogue about big ideas through interdisciplinary connections. Through this process, participants will strengthen their InSights photographic thinking skill set: storytelling, visual literacy, empathy, communication, earning trust, ethics, resilience, critical thinking, perspective, context and legacy.
Ashoka U endorses the PhotoWings’ InSights: Past, Present, and Future Self grant opportunity as a way to complement Ashoka’s tradition of the “life history” interview where social entrepreneurs share their personal history and motivations to describe why they pursue social change. The goal of this project is to build a strong changemaker community by discovering underlying values and motivations for pursuing social change through cross-discipline, cross-cultural, and cross-generation connections, while articulating a vision for the future.
