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.

DJ Clark won the World Press Photo Interactive award in April 2020 with an extraordinary immersive film, Battleground PolyU, from the peak of the Hong Kong protests of November 2019. We are delighted to welcome him to a Zoom discussion for Redeye.

Culture is “in the driving seat” of political change. For this Rethink Session we welcome two change leaders to discuss how care might be more centrally embedded after Covid-19, and the role of the arts and culture in accelerating that change.

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?’.

An evening looking at photography and place. Three artists with diverse approaches will discuss their work about the interaction between landscape and experience, answering the question ‘How does our individual perception alter our interpretation of a place?’.
