Quinn is a new installation from artist, photographer and writer Lottie Davies. It is the fictional story of a young man, William Henry Quinn, who walks from the south west of England to the far north of Scotland in post-Second World War Britain. Although fictional, the work responds to the real-world experiences of young men and women post-trauma in the early 20th century and now.

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?
