An event that might be of interest to members, organised by former Redeye volunteer Shirazee Ahmed.
Whilst Azee was living and working on a development project for the duration of 3 months in Nepal, looking into water safety and hygiene, the series People of Kapseri was created. Living in the district of Makwunpur in a village called Kapseri situated slightly on the outskirts of Hetauda, Kapseri is populated with the cast of Tamang, each portrait which was taken of each individual shows the essence of life in Nepal, showing the agriculture of the villagers.
The event will consist of a morning of presentations by a group of expert reviewers on key features of portfolio and professional development. During the afternoon there will be opportunities for one to one portfolio advice and reviews from 3 reviewers for 20 minutes each. This event is perfect for emerging practitioners, students and artists and will provide valuable advice and reviews from leading practitioners, curators and commissioners. Speakers and reviewers include Anthony Luvera, Liz Hingley, Niall Mcdiarmid, Sebah Chaudhry and Skinder Hundal.
