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?’.

In these unsettling times we think that it is more important than ever that we stay connected.  This event is a starting point for ‘Stay and Chat’; a remote meet up for our members to discuss the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, strategies for coping and how Redeye can best support the photographic community.

Fourth Year is a series of informal networking sessions for early career photographers to gain support for their practice.

Redeye has partnered up with universities in the North to offer support to early career photographers, whether you have recently graduated or need some support in developing your photographic practice.

Juno Calypso is an award-winning photographic artist, working with galleries such as TJ Boulting and Foam Amsterdam, and clients including Burberry. In this talk produced in collaboration with Manchester Art Gallery she will present her work to date.

Redeye has partnered up with universities in the North to offer support to early career photographers, whether you have recently graduated or need some support in developing your photographic practice. Maybe you're looking for advice on your latest project, in need of industry contacts or simply wanting to feel connected to a group of like-minded photographers in a similar situation to your own.

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?’.

Get informal advice on your career or work during 1-1s with experts in the industry. At this month's critique, we welcome guest panellists Clarissa Corfe, Relationship Manager in Visual Art at Arts Council England, and photographer and lecturer Ben McDonnell in addition to Redeye's Director Paul Herrmann. 

 

‘Photographs from Another Place’ presents a found archive alongside contemporary images, taken in response to the people and places found through examination of the archive. Join us for a tour of the exhibition and to hear Alan discussing his process of working with the archive.

The second in our series of Come and Chat events will be based around the topics of Training and Access.

1. Access, anxiety, diversity, difficulty: how can we make sure the full range of voices is heard in photography? Which ones get squeezed out?

2. Training and academia: what is the role of universities and independent training organisations? Does the growth of academic practice have unintended consequences?
