Bringing Photography Education to West London Youth

A testament to the power of youth culture, independence, and creativity, Dazed Magazine has been at the cutting edge of media since being founded in 1991. Seamlessly moving between print and digital, Dazed stays fresh by keeping its connection to the community fully versed in the power of the present.

Most recently, Dazed teamed up with Red Hook Labs, a Brooklyn-based public benefit corporation, to create Dazed+Labs, a series of free classes and mentoring in the arts to UK youth — a concerted effort organized in response to cuts in UK education funding.

The partnership premiered in November 2018 with a ten-week, two-hour photography class held at the Rugby Portobello Trust, a West London youth center, led by photographer eddie OTCHERE  and Dazed’s Arts & Culture editor Ashleigh Kane.
