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.

Fourth Year is a series of informal networking sessions for early career photographers to gain support for their practice.

Redeye has partnered up with universities in the North to offer support to early career photographers, whether you have recently graduated or need some support in developing your photographic practice.

Redeye has partnered up with universities in the North to offer support to early career photographers, whether you have recently graduated or need some support in developing your photographic practice. Maybe you're looking for advice on your latest project, in need of industry contacts or simply wanting to feel connected to a group of like-minded photographers in a similar situation to your own.

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?

Background

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.

Hothouse arrives in Liverpool in partnership with LOOK Photo Biennial for a day-long celebration of photographic talent. Throughout the day there will be quick-fire presentations from photographers about their recent work and projects, which will drill down to the substance and inspiration behind a project. Get involved - apply to present, plus there is ample opportunity for networking and to show your portfolios and books.

Touchstones Rochdale Gallery; the Nowruz/New Day exhibition.

Nowruz/New Day presents the results of the unique collaboration between the Art Fund Collection of Middle Eastern Photography, assembled by the British Museum and the V&A and the Global Conversations, a group of refugees who meet on a weekly basis at nearby St. Chad’s Church in Rochdale who co-curated the exhibition with Touchstones. The exhibition poses a range of critical questions about the collection of Middle Eastern Photography and, more generally, how the Middle East is presented through the media.

To kick off the Autumn 2019 Redeye series of events, join us for an in conversation with three talented artists, Edmund Clark, Roxana Allison, and Pablo Allison. Each will be presenting their latest work and discussing the similarities and differences between their approach, style and subject matter.

Redeye's 2019 Annual General Meeting takes place on 24 September 2019 at Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Thomas Street, Manchester M4 1EU, from 6.30-8.30pm. The AGM is where Redeye reflects on the past year as well as making key decisions for the future.

Ever had that overwhelming feeling of social anxiety when the word 'networking' is muttered? Ever avoided walking up to a person and introducing yourself as a photographer or artist? Then struggled to remember what your work is, never mind coherently talk about it? If the answer to any of the above is 'yes', 'maybe' or 'please stop talking about networking', join us on the 13th July for our anti-networking event at Manchester Craft and Design Centre as part of Manifest Arts Festival.
