PHOTO PROJECT RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT WEEKEND WORKSHOP
PHOTOFUSION, BRIXTON, LONDON
Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 June 2012
Tri-pod is calling for applicants for its weekend Photo Project Research and Development workshop to be held in the studio space at Photofusion in Brixton.
About the weekend workshop:
Tri-pod has been developing a creative model for the realisation of photographic and lens-based projects and exploring ways of working using an informal group structure since 2010. The aim of the weekend will be to support participants who specifically have a photographic project in progress.
The weekend will be based on the belief that some photographers would benefit from the support of peers and mentors whilst developing a body of work. During the workshop, we will discuss approaches to your working practice and the various challenges that can block a project from moving forward. There will also be an opportunity, all day on Sunday, to receive personal guidance and feedback, in small groups, from three industry professionals about your Project in Progress (PiP).
Tri-pod will be developing a network for its workshop participants and will be offering evening and half day follow-up sessions for ongoing support later in 2012.
Exhibition opportunity for 2013:
In collaboration with Photofusion, two participants, who will be selected from those attending Tri-pod workshops, can apply to be included in a two-person show to be held in the summer of 2013 at Photofusion’s gallery in Brixton.
This workshop is aimed at people who have a photography Project in Progress. It can be a documentary/editorial or art-based body of work. Please note that applicants will need to bring images and, if applicable, research notes/sketchbook to show over the weekend.
Please email a 150-word maximum overview of your Project in Progress or an artist statement (in the body of the email)
with a CV attached to:email@example.com
The deadline for applications is Monday 4 June at 5pm.
Successful applicants will be contacted on Wednesday 6 June.
