A view to the horizon

Every individual or organization acts in the light of guiding values moving them forward and outline their paradigmes.
"A view To The Horizon" provides a platform where  participants are introduced to organizational values and share their own. In the first part of the workshop, participants deepen their understanding of the organizational values and set out to express them through phgotgraphy. In the second part (Half-day workshops), participants formulate a personal vision that they aspire to achieve inspired by the values found in the same "toolbox".

Formulating a vision is based on the ability to imagine a picture of reality as if it existed in the present. During the workshop, the camera provides the opportunity to "paint" the vision and allows participants to use everyday materials surrounding them in order to express the vision and open a window into the future.

 

Key chapters in the workshop

  • Introducing and connecting to the values that lead me through cards
    The participants choose a card that expresses their perception of leading values – what is the chosen value? How is itexpressed in the card I chose?
  • Photo Expression – Presentation (Photography Tips)
    In order to bring life and spirit into the vision, participants become aware of several means of expression that help in creatin quality photography: composition, selection of objects, photography from different angles, use of symbols, color and shape, light and shadow, textures, portraits, homages and more.
  • Selected values photo tasks  
    Participants choose a photography task dealing with selected values and using various means of expression. Values will be selected in advance from the

  • Who or what am I responsible for?

    Depending on the chosen value, relevant questions will be incorporated into the processing and formulation of personal and organizational insights.Uploading images to the computer, observing and discussing the following topics:
