Redeye's Rethink Sessions aim to help photographers and artists navigate the COVID-19 crisis; to reprioritise, and find new ideas and income during the pandemic and beyond.

A good artist statement gives the audience an access point into your work, communicating clearly who you are. It is about finding your creative voice. For this Rethink Session we will take a focused look at writing about your work with writer, curator and academic Camilla Brown.

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.

Interested in large format film photography? Want to improve your ideas and technique? Come and hear from photographer Craig Easton, and if you like, bring along your work for group critique and feedback.

Craig Easton uses large format photography as part of Sixteen, a major new national touring project involving 16 photographers looking at the experience of 16-year-olds all around the UK. The project evolved from his earlier work The Scottish Referendum Project and aims to give a platform for young people from all walks of life to express their aspirations, hopes, dreams and fears for their futures.
