Picturing England’s High Street: Chester

Picturing England’s High Street is a three-year project which includes six photographer-in-residence programmes at six high street locations across England, as well as artist mentoring and a digital nationwide mass participation project. Open Eye Gallery has opened applications for the photographer-in-residence programme in Chester High Street Heritage Action Zone.

High street users and the community are at the heart of this project and we are looking for photographers whose practice is socially engaged. We are proposing a way of working rather than a thematic or visual approach.

About the Chester High Streets Heritage Action Zone and Open Eye Gallery

The residency will be developed within the context of a wider programme Chester High Street Heritage Action Zone based around the Rows. The core High Street Heritage Action Zone programme is designed to secure lasting improvements to our historic high streets making them a more attractive, engaging and vibrant place for people to live, work and spend time. A Cultural Programme is being developed on each of the high streets, alongside the core programme. The priority for this programme will be to work with communities and celebrate what is unique about the rows, its stories and people.

We are looking for a photographer who has an interest in Chester and whose practice embraces the opportunity to co-author the project with the local community. We would welcome applications from socially engaged photographers that live in or have a connection to Chester – although this is not essential.

Get involved

To apply to this open call, please see our Opportunities page for full details.
