Become a volunteer on Photovillle Education Day and discuss photo works with students and internationally renowned photographers.

Guide and inspire schools students while discussing exhibition subjects with internationally renowned Photographers on Photoville Education Day!

Each year Photoville Education Day welcomes 300 students from New York City schools for a photo-based field trip “designed to inspire, enlighten and entertain.” A Photoville Volunteer is assigned to each students group and guides them along a prepared path to specific education related exhibition containers where exhibition artists themselves give insights in their work and give opportunity for discussion as well as critique.
