Are you concerned about the climate crisis and how you can address it through your photographic practice? Would you like to meet other climate aware photographers?
Do you have a project you would like some feedback on?
Our Come and Chat sessions are friendly, relaxed and welcoming spaces to show your work, chat with photographers about their work and business and help you feel reconnected and inspired!
For this event you will see presentations by photographers who are certified as Climate Aware Photographers and find out more about Redeye’s Climate Aware Photography course. We would also like to invite anyone to show some work and share your current practice with other photographers. You can bring along printed imagery, such as images from your portfolio, which can be spread out along tables. Or, if you don’t have anything printed at the moment you can bring along your laptop to show some images on the screen. This event is the perfect place to practise presenting your work, and to meet with other photographers and artists in the region, and get some friendly, supportive feedback.
Or if you don't have anything to show, just come along to look and chat.
It's all very informal along the lines of our previous Stay and Chat events, and as ever you are welcome to come along and participate or sit and listen to the conversation - no need for fears! This is also a great opportunity to reconnect with the photo community and meet other artists working within the region.
Redeye's network meetings are a great chance to meet, discuss and be inspired by other photographers and those working with photography, and the exciting possibilities within photographic practice.
For this Come and Chat, we will be within the Spark Network exhibition 'SPARK: Artists' Interventions in a Time of Crisis' which will be up until 13th January 2024 at Rogue Project Space.
