Networking event 

28th May 2022; 1pm - 4pm 

 

Are you feeling a bit disconnected from the photography community post lockdown? 

This is a relaxed opportunity to reconnect with the photo community and meet other artists working within the region. We would also like to take this opportunity to (re-) introduce ourselves to you and meet you in real life. You will hear from the director of Redeye, Paul Herrmann, as well as a couple of other photographers in a short presentation. Redeye's programme co-ordinator Rebecca Burns will be there too. 

For this event we would 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 send in some images which we will show on a projector. 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.

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. 

 

Who is it for?

This event is for any photographers, artists or anyone working in a connected field, looking to meet new people, practise talking about their work and gain new professional connections. It's open to photographers and artists at every level, and is highly recommended for experienced and non-experienced networkers alike! 

We encourage you to bring examples of your artistic work with you - either in printed format or send them to rebecca@redeye.org.uk before the 26th May 1pm to show on the projector.

If you're not sure what to bring, please feel free to get in touch for some suggestions.
