Student and graduation panel session: Where now?

Paul Herrmann and a group of mentors from across the image-making industry will come together to give quick-fire advice to those who have just graduated (or who are still studying) and are wondering what options there are to progress their careers in light of the recent global upheaval. The panellists will invite their audience to think creatively and adapt their mindset to a working environment that while challenging, could also offer some very different opportunities.

Getting Your Ducks in a Row

15 September 2020, 18:00 to 19:15

Getting the business side of your practice organised is one of those tasks that always seems to slip down the to-do list. But not doing so, and not following up when your work gets misused, can be costly. Has your work ever been reproduced without your permission? Or has a client ever made more of your work than was agreed? And why when challenged do so many people say 'But it's only a photo'? This event will give you the skills and knowledge to understand when and how to push back and demand fair payment for your images. 

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.

Redeye's Snapshots are a series of skill sharing workshops, offering quick introductions to new creative ideas and techniques.

Join us for a 30 minute demonstration from fine-art photographer Scott Hunter, providing insight into exploring this traditional printing technique from your own home without the need for a darkroom. In this introduction to Cyanotype printing, you will gain understanding into mixing chemistry, coating papers, selecting objects, and exposing the prints.

 

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.
