Stepping back to jump forward

In mid-April 2020 Redeye invited colleagues from Company of Mind, Adrian West and Sophie Brown, to talk online to artists and photographers about how to adapt creative businesses to the coronavirus pandemic. They shared some useful ideas about how to think about and picture businesses in a way that enables us to see what we might change for the better.

Setting up a community photography group

Here Lāsma writes for Redeye about the experience and the results so far.
