Graduate Takeover is a short season of events, advice and inspiration led by last year’s photography graduates, to help you hit the ground running. It’s free and open to all, especially new graduates and new starters, and co-delivered by RedeyeFuse and Short Supply.

In this session Paul and Rosie from Redeye will talk through how to plan your business model, and use it strategically to monetise your practice and build your career.  

Our Careers Clinics are an open space for discussion, each week looking at a different element of running a successful creative practice. On Wednesday the 16th June we are thrilled to welcome Jaheed Hussain, founder of Fuse, and Hawwa Alam, co-founder of The Rice Bowl Collective, to talk about marketing yourself and your work.

Archiving Through Change

13 November 2020, 13:15 to 14:15

Originally envisaged as a physical exchange between UK and Hong Kong visual arts networks, Peer to Peer has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic to become an online space where meaningful exchange can happen and partnerships and relationships can be forged. This panel discusses the changing role of archives, comparing the approaches in Hong Kong and the UK, and considers what the archives and collections of the future might look like.

An overview and discussion concerning the ethical challenges and issues facing photography today, with Savannah Dodd, founding director of the Photography Ethics Centre. Free and all welcome.

Have you protected your photography in a robust way online and offline? Are you at risk of missing out on payment? What can you do if you find your photography or visual art copied and stolen for online use?

Some say this is an unfortunate by-product of the internet and social media, but it is possible to be paid for this work by following a few simple rules. Following his very popular session at the National Photography Symposium 2018, we are delighted to be working in partnership with the NUJ to welcome back photographer John Walmsley to explain how to do it.
