Description

5 years ago
On the lovely new /explore page (https://webmaker.mofostaging.net/explore) there is a graphic of people sitting and watching at screen with the Webmaker logo. 

The graphic looks good, but worried it counters the message we're telling mentors: Webmaker events are participatory, hands-on, interactive, no slides/lectures. 

Perhaps we could replace with a live event photo, like: 

* https://webmaker.mofostaging.net/img/img-Mentor-feature.jpg
* https://webmaker.mofostaging.net/img/img-Get-Involved-feature.jpg

I hear ya Michelle, i know this was a concern.

We are using those pictures elsewhere in the site though. Can we pick something completely new?

I still think something illustrative would be nice here, so we can add in some interaction on the page.

Adding Lainie who might have better suggestions, but I *love* the Hive NYC photos as illustrative of good Webmaker events. 

Some highlights:

* https://secure.flickr.com/photos/newyouthcity/9902444756/in/set-72157635812521843 (for sneaking in a little Firefox action)
* https://secure.flickr.com/photos/newyouthcity/14153666337/ (for its smiles)
* https://secure.flickr.com/photos/paul_clarke/7275780932/in/gallery-mozilladrumbeat-72157631590759165/ (for Thimble in action)
* https://secure.flickr.com/photos/zeroseven0183/7868966928/in/gallery-mozilladrumbeat-72157631590359710/ (for colors and community pic)

+1 for interactions -- maybe yes/and for a photo somewhere on this page, or an illustration that's got a hands-on feel?

I really like that last one from the Philippines Maker Party. 

Here are photos from our event last week: https://www.flickr.com/photos/newyouthcity/sets/72157644495371568/

How about any from Shreyas' awesome Maker Party recaps?

This is helpful but I think I should do some further photo selection for composition / design quality. Will flag you guys for review of photo content / story when I get to it.

Matt, great photo. Do we have it higher res? Min 1200px wide.

Also, there is text on top of the photo so we need to factor that in with some design tweaks.

Moving this to the next train.

Before we do, is there a related bug for development? Could we add it to the "Blocks" field so the appropriate bugmail gets sent out when this gets closed?
* Aki: please file whatever you need, and mark this ticket resolved when complete.
