Photography Groups: Taking Initative
In a time of crisis, how do we come together as a community in solidarity? What does it take to start a campaign? How do you decide who to help? We invite four photography collectives and groups in Asia to share their experience of creating initiatives and events to help others in their community. From print sales to mentorship programmes, they will share the lessons learnt, and, hopefully inspire you to do the same. > Details

From the personal to the political, we invite our workshop alumni to share with us their projects which were conceptualised and created during the pandemic, and to reflect on their work in a time of disruption and upheaval. > Details
