What’s changing in your life, and how are you coping? What’s on your photographic radar? What does photography need? What can Redeye do? Please come and share your thoughts and concerns at one or more of our discussion events. We will start with a different question and subject each time but who knows where the conversation might wander. Sit round a table to join in, or just listen.
The second in our series of Come and Chat events will be based around the topics of Training and Access.
1. Access, anxiety, diversity, difficulty: how can we make sure the full range of voices is heard in photography? Which ones get squeezed out?
2. Training and academia: what is the role of universities and independent training organisations? Does the growth of academic practice have unintended consequences?
