In the beginning of November 2014, our CCAP group at Drexel University, Dragons for Israel, hosted the well-known Israeli Photojournalist Gil Cohen-Magen. The group hoped that Cohen-Magen would stir interest in the State of Israel as well as bring out a crowd of Drexel students.
The event was quite a success! Over 20 students came, including students from the Arts Institute of Philadelphia as well as unaffiliated students interested in photography and photojournalism.
Our CCAP Representative, Mia Smith, was very excited about this event, saying, “It was awesome to see those new faces and receive their contact information in order to get them to come to more DFI events in the future. Gil Cohen-Magen’s ability to connect and get his message across to the audience was incredible. He’s a truly remarkable human being and an incredible speaker.”
Smith had the opportunity to talk with Cohen-Magen before he spoke and took care to note his genuine, hardworking spirit to us at the CAMERA offices.
CAMERA is so excited that DFI had a successful event with Gil Cohen-Smith, and are prouder and prouder of DFI every day. After four years as a successful CAMERA Campus Activist Project group, they show no signs of slowing down!
