CROSSING SECTORS #2

DEADLINE: 21 October, Midnight

A socially engaged practice development programme for artists working with photography and lens based media 

Deadline for applications: Monday 21st October

Proposed start date: Monday 2nd November 2020 with weekly sessions split between alternate training weeks and mentoring/ group crit sessions. The programme will finish at the end of February 2021. 

Open Eye Gallery is delighted to be partnering with photographer in residence Stephen King and the wider team from Heart of Glass to deliver its second year of the Crossing Sectors programme. 

Crossing Sectors is a professional development training programming, exploring the role of socially engaged photography across and with various sector and community contexts. The programme will support practitioners to explore the multiple ways culture can be co-authored with others. 

We have invited additional specialist facilitators from across the cultural, health, youth, environmental and community settings as well as sessions around diversity and safeguarding training, sharing expertise and insights of working within each area. 

Each session will offer practical, methodological and ethical advice and this year we are excited to invite some of our Year 1 Crossing Sector programme attendees back to act as mentors with the new cohort of participants. 

Guest speakers, facilitators and mentors include Stephen King, Patrick Fox, Mark Storor, Liz Wewiora, Andy Yates, Sue Logie (Sefton youth services), Emma Case, Suzanne St.Clare, Tony Mallon, Toki Allison, and many others. 

In light of the current social distancing measures we will be delivering the sessions online, but will explore options for a final physical get together session, as and when government guidelines may change. We will also work closely with our partners and our participants to ensure our online delivery is accessible as possible. 

We are particularly interested to hear from applicants from the BAME community and those who identify as living with a disability. 

To apply please send an up to date CV, examples of your work (up to 6 images) or a link to your work online and a supporting statement (no more than 1 x A4 side) explaining:

– Why you are interested in the opportunity

– What you hope to bring to the programme as a participant. 

Please email your application to liz@openeye.org.uk.
