Ahead of the start of our autumn activities we wanted to check in with our members. This will be an online member meet-up led by Redeye Director Paul Herrmann to discuss work and photography during and after the pandemic, strategies for coping and how Redeye can best support our members.

The AGM is one of the key meetings for Redeye members each year. It's a chance to hear about and discuss plans for the future, reflect on the past year, and make some key decisions. You'll meet other Redeye members as well as staff and board members. It’s a great opportunity for any questions you have about our programme or other matters. 

In 2020 for the first time it takes place virtually, on Zoom. Register below and you will be sent the Zoom link just before the event.

Our Open Space events are discussions on a particular subject. Open to all, and we particularly welcome anyone with experience or knowledge of the subject covered.

Open Space: What’s Next for Photography Graduates will allow graduating students to discuss their concerns and hear about some of the help available to graduates at this challenging time.

Redeye's Rethink Sessions aim to help photographers and artists navigate and adapt to the COVID-19 crisis; to reprioritise, and find new ideas and income during the pandemic and beyond. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed our daily lives. Moving forwards we know how effectively we can collectively adapt and reprioritise; should we and how we can apply this to the climate crisis?

For the next Rethink Session Phil Korbel, social entrepreneur and co-founder of  The Carbon Literacy Project, will join the discussion. We will look at how artists can get more actively involved; make their own arts practice carbon neutral; and use visual communication skills to spread the message. Can we make a positive impact on the planet an integral part of this ‘new normal’?

Redeye's Rethink Sessions aim to help photographers and artists navigate and adapt to the COVID-19 crisis; to reprioritise, and find new ideas and income during the pandemic and beyond. 

Photographers and artists have always created valuable historical records at times of crisis, including the current COVID-19 pandemic. Join us for a Rethink Session with Ian Hunter of Littoral Arts looking at the various works that photographers and artists are producing, and to talk through our collective response.

Stay and Chat

15 April 2020, 16:30 to 28 May 2020, 16:00

In these unsettling times we think that it is more important than ever that we stay connected. Redeye hosts regular ‘Stay and Chat’ sessions; remote meet-ups for anyone to discuss the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, strategies for coping and how best to support the photographic community.

The Socially Engaged Photography Network is a national and inclusive network bringing organisations, photographers, community groups, academics and curators from across the country to discuss and accelerate the practice of socially engaged photography. North West cultural hosts Redeye Photography Network and Open Eye Gallery are delighted to host the next regional meet up on Tuesday 5th May, 5 - 6.40pm.

The Rethink Sessions

Redeye's Rethink Sessions aim to help photographers and artists navigate and adapt to the COVID-19 crisis; to reprioritise, and find new ideas and income during the pandemic and beyond. The first of The Rethink Sessions will aim to tackle a couple of the most common questions we have been asked; ‘How do I fund my practice through the pandemic?’ and ‘How can I respond artistically?’.

In these unsettling times we think that it is more important than ever that we stay connected.  This event is a starting point for ‘Stay and Chat’; a remote meet up for our members to discuss the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, strategies for coping and how Redeye can best support the photographic community.
