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. 

Photographers and artists have always created valuable historical records at times of crisis, including the current COVID-19 pandemic. Join us for a Rethink Session with Ian Hunter of Littoral Arts looking at the various works that photographers and artists are producing, and to talk through our collective response.

DJ Clark won the World Press Photo Interactive award in April 2020 with an extraordinary immersive film, Battleground PolyU, from the peak of the Hong Kong protests of November 2019. We are delighted to welcome him to a Zoom discussion for Redeye.

Culture is “in the driving seat” of political change. For this Rethink Session we welcome two change leaders to discuss how care might be more centrally embedded after Covid-19, and the role of the arts and culture in accelerating that change.

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. Please join us for a Rethink Session with Dr Katrin Joost presenting a philosophical take on the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on our lives individually and collectively.

The Socially Engaged Photography Network is a national and inclusive network bringing organisations, photographers, community groups, academics and curators from across the country to discuss and accelerate the practice of socially engaged photography.

The Rethink Sessions

8 April 2020, 17:00 to 9 June 2020, 19:30

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. 

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.
