Join Tailyr Irvine, a National Geographic Explorer and instructor of free photo storytelling courses for teachers and students, as she explores the power of visual storytelling to represent and amplify the voices of indigenous communities.

In a conversation with Brian Johnsrud, PhD, education curriculum strategy lead at Adobe, Tailyr will share:

  • How photography offers learners a window into how storytelling can stop time and communicate deep personal, social, and political concerns
  • Her personal experiences and projects regarding blood quantum and the urgency for Native Americans to see themselves represented accurately in American collective storytelling
  • How to access Adobe and National Geographic’s free, self-paced storytelling courses for teachers, students, and young creators
