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.

During the Covid-19 lockdown we’ve all become acutely aware of one of the most essential values of digital preservation: remote access. Most physical collections, libraries, and archives have been closed down for several weeks.  This two day event explores how we can best preserve and give access to our digital archives and collections.

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.

Juno Calypso is an award-winning photographic artist, working with galleries such as TJ Boulting and Foam Amsterdam, and clients including Burberry. In this talk produced in collaboration with Manchester Art Gallery she will present her work to date.

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.

‘Photographs from Another Place’ presents a found archive alongside contemporary images, taken in response to the people and places found through examination of the archive. Join us for a tour of the exhibition and to hear Alan discussing his process of working with the archive.

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?

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years, but it has! For our anniversary we will be marking this landmark year by inviting three photographers who spoke at Redeye’s first public lectures to return. It’s a chance to reflect on their photographic careers in parallel to Redeye’s lifespan. The second session in the series sees Joy Gregory invite Ronan McKenzie.
