Art Meets Education e.V.

In our photography workshops, we encourage children from financially disadvantaged families to follow their inner impulses, camera in hand. This results in very special pictures, which we present and sell in exhibitions. The proceeds ensure that the children can attend school until they graduate from high school. Our concern is help for self-help: The ability to independently finance their own school education is the key to a self-determined life without poverty.

Drittelregel Fotoschule

We've made it our challenge with the Drittelregel Photo School to make your photography meaningful: In our photo courses and photo webinars, you'll learn to craft good, interesting, independent images and edit them to your liking.

In the photo projects, we focus on conceptual work and creating photographic series. Here you can tell stories, convey your view of things, make statements with the means of photography.
