Description

FORMAT, QUAD (Derby) and GRAIN Projects (Birmingham) are delighted to announce a new collaborative project that will provide fifteen emerging artists and photographers with a professional development opportunity. This is the third East Meets West collaboration and follows two very successful previous editions.

During the Masterclass sessions industry and art form leaders will share their knowledge and practical advice on developing a successful career, self-initiated marketing, self-publishing, methods and applying for and obtaining funding.  The sessions will also include guidance on portfolio development, production techniques, editing and sequencing for publications, expanding ideas and research, writing exhibition interpretation and project statements, exhibition layout and curation. The programme will also offer group portfolio review sessions where reviewers will provide feedback regarding work and current projects.

The Masterclass programme aims to offer guidance in a supportive collaborative learning environment in order to allow photographers to build confidence in their practice and network with fellow practitioners. The programme will offer a platform for participants to receive personal guidance and participate in career focussed discussions that will make a difference to their work and contribute to their professional development.

Masterclass participants will be given a chance to share their work at a dedicated FORMAT PhotoForum event. There will also be a production budget provided for participants to work as a collective to create a self-directed joint outcome of their choosing, such as a newspaper, publication, event or exhibition.

This opportunity is aimed at emerging photographers wishing to broaden their perspectives and push the boundaries of their personal development. We welcome diverse and innovative submissions.

Masterclass events, speakers, portfolio reviewers and workshop leaders include: Peta Murphy (Arts Council England), Mahtab Hussain (Artist), Abbas Zahedi (Artist), Natasha Caruana (Artist), Colin Pantall (Writer & Photographer), The Photocopy Club (Photographer, Curator & Publisher), Nicola Shipley (GRAIN), and Louise Fedotov-Clements (FORMAT & QUAD).
