It’s up on the website! I’ll be running a new course at Chelsea College of Arts in November – a three-day course to allow students to develop their Mixed Media Photography project: from proposal writing to shooting, editing and manipulating. All the details can be found here.
I’ll be running a free one hour session Adobe Photoshop Beginners as part of Morley College Morsels on Friday 11th March. All the details here: https://www.morleycollege.ac.uk/events/273-morley-morsels
Every year Apothecary Gallery works with students studying art at our local colleges to present a series of exhibitions of their work. We hope you will be able to join us for the exhibitions, view some exciting art and meet these talented young artists. This is a great opportunity to support our local community and young people.
I will be showing some of my work at Number 22 Bar and restaurant in Herne Hill, South London.
Opening Event: Wednesday 27th February 6pm – 8pm – All welcome
Exhibition runs: 27th February – 21st April 2013
Number 22 is open from 5pm – 11pm Wednesday to Sunday
The exhibition will feature hand painted liquid emulsion prints from my Beirut project as well as newly printed images from the Nunhead series.
All work will be on sale. 10% off all sales will go towards buying resources and materials for a series of photography workshops I’ll be delivering this April with young people in Uganda. This project is ran through All Our Children a UK-based charity.
This April I will have the opportunity to spend two weeks volunteering for All Our Children, running photography workshops with young people in Uganda. Unfortunatly we’re in need of photographic equipment!!!! So if you have or know anyone who does have any spare 35mm compact cameras, disposable cameras and / or 35mm film (black and white, colour or even slide which could be out of date as they’ll be cross processed), contact me.
For the last ten weeks I’ve been running Mighty Mega photography project assisted by illustrator Cristina Bueno. The great work created by the participants from week to week leading to the final exhibition can be found here along with some recordings of the young ones’ experiences. Enjoy!
The Mighty Mega Saturday Club is a club for children with disabilities/SEN and their families/carers run by Discover Children’s Story Centre. The club is free to join and provides children with opportunities to take part in different creative activities.
Nice article on a portrait workshop I assisted with a couple of months back. Issue one of Not Our Class, (which is available online) is a newsletter/reader produced as part of a new education programme of the same name led by Studio Voltaire. Through research and practice Not Our Class takes the work of Jo Spence as a starting point for investigating the legacy and potentials of her work in relation to contemporary culture, life and pedagogy.
The above workshop took place at Lambeth Women’s Project (LWP) which is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation that provides a women-run space dedicated to women’s services. The Lambeth Women’s Project is currently under treat as it has recently been given 2 weeks to leave what has been its home of over 3 decades. You can help by signing the petition to SAVE LWP HERE or simply go and picket, go and occupy, go and help LWP stay where it belongs, details here.
Exciting, exciting!!!!! I have been selected as one of the 5 artists to be involved in Arts Depot’s Creative Routes 2012, a visual arts project that works with primary schools to create an original piece of visual art that is then displayed in the gallery for public view.
Creative Routes is part of Arts Depot successful schools programme, which provides innovative and educational arts projects, workshops, residencies and INSETS .www.artsdepot.co.uk
