Graduate Takeover is a short season of events, advice and inspiration led by last year’s photography graduates, to help you hit the ground running. It’s free and open to all, especially new graduates and new starters, and co-delivered by Redeye, Fuse and Short Supply.
This will be an introduction to Affinity Photo and Publisher software, a cheaper alternative to Adobe.
Join us from 2 - 3:30pm on Wednesday the 9th June to see the possibilities of the software. There will be a prize draw with some free software during the event.
Our Careers Clinics are an open space for discussion, each week looking at a different element of running a successful creative practice. Come along on Wednesdays between 1-2pm to hear from Redeye, Fuse and Short Supply sharing guidance on business models, marketing yourself and finding resources and support.
You will need to register for free on Redeye's website to get the link to attend the Zoom meeting. This will be an informal discussion and you are welcome to sit and listen or bring your questions.
Paul and Rosie from Redeye will introduce you to business models on Wednesday the 23rd June. Click here to book.
And on Wednesday 30th June, Short Supply will be sharing hints on how to find and make the most of artist resources. Booking details to come!
This is an opportunity to hear talented artists and photographers with varied practices and interests talk about their first year after graduating mid-pandemic.
Each graduate will introduce themselves and their practice, and then there will be a discussion themed around a topic particularly relevant to new starters. You are welcome to come along and listen to the discussion and then stay for further discussion and informal networking in small breakout rooms.
On Wednesday 23rd June from 7 - 8:30pm we welcome Niamh Donnelly to talk about building new communities at a time when traditional meeting spaces were out of bounds. Stay tuned for the booking link.
