Event Details

The Event:
The first annual “Beers for Burma” is a fundraising arts event showcasing local talent and featuring Colorado craft beers, live music, circus-style aerial acrobatic 
performances, and local art. Profits support the upcoming Shoot Cameras Not Guns photography training in Burma and Thailand. (www.ShootCamerasNotGuns.org)

Who We Are:

“Shoot Cameras Not Guns” is a Denver-based project focused on teaching photography as a tool and catalyst for social empowerment and social change. 
SCNG was born in 2006 on the Thai/Burma (Myanmar) border, teaching photography to Burmese journalists-in-exile, and refugees seeking education. In 2010 SCNG provided photography training and cameras to youth in Meru, Kenya. Locally, we’ve partnered with Flobots.org to teach photography to local underserved and at-risk youth. Youth use photos as a form of communication, storytelling, empowerment, and as an alternative to violence.

Event Goals:
To fundraise for Shoot Cameras Not Guns upcoming workshops, while supporting our home community and connections. Workshops will teach students how to tell their own stories to the world through photos. Student photography will be used to engage local populations in dialogue that encourages social change and empowerment to the systematically-oppressed populations of Burma, and will allow them to share their stories with the world. Burma is just beginning to open to freedom of speech & expression, and we aim to support this shift non-violently.
