NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR STUDENTS
IMAgEN8 is a registered charity whose purpose is to foster sustainable connections with New Zealand's natural environment in our diverse communities through education, photography and technology.
IMPROVE MENTAL WELLBEING
BUILD SKILLS AND CONFIDENCE
PROTECT NATURE (KAITIAKITANGA)
We conduct nature photography workshops on school grounds and nature reserves that connect students with Nature, enhance their wellbeing, build skills and foster environmental stewardship through creative expression. Students' work is published in books and a digital magazine, Compassionate Nature.
Our new 'Borrow a camera, tell a story' program enables students to capture compelling stories about Nature. We are an accredited activity for the Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award. We also offer Wellbeing workshops and create educational content for tamariki to learn and be inspired.
"This we know - the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
