Design your own magazine and develop your artistic vision

Are you between 17 and 26 years old and do you have a passion for photography and storytelling? Sign up for the Foam Forward programme led by photographer and film maker Fidelio Faustino and learn to develop your own artistic vision. During this programme, you will be guided in creating your own visual language by producing a small magazine. The zine focuses on telling a story and developing your own photographic vision.

The Foam Forward programme consists of a series of 6 workshops. The workshop will start on Thursday 2 June. After that, it will take place weekly on Thursdays from 19:00 to 21:00 hrs. Included in the workshop is a visit to creative space MAQAM and Galerie Mercatorplein, free access to Foam and the production costs of your magazine.
