More about Halide programs:

Year-round The Halide Project presents a variety of free and low cost programming for photographers of all levels of experience from professional to beginner. Join us to engage in something you love with fellow analog enthusiasts or learn a new technique in an artist-led workshop.

Past activities have included photo walk meet-ups, artist talks, book signings, pop-up shows, visits to museum archives, cyanotypes in the park, group critiques, and workshops in historic processes such as pinhole camera making, large format photography, wet plate collodion, and more.
