After School – Collective Strategies Open Call
After School – Collective Strategies is a public programme consisting of a series of talks and workshops culminating in a group presentation in the autumn. A collaborative effort between pic.london and London College of Communication, the programme explores collective ways of working both conceptually and in action, and considers them as strategies that can be helpful, especially for early stage artists who often struggle in the extremely challenging period after graduating. The workshops as part of After School – Collective Strategies are designed for early stage artists to get together under a supportive network and explore collective ways of working. The three workshops are led by and for a wide range of practitioners, from photographers, artists who work in between photography and other media, to curators, researchers and writers who are interested in photography and its expanded forms. 18 selected participants will work with the same group of peers and the workshop leader over three sessions between May and June, reconvene in September for a curating session, and have a public group presentation together in September/October in London. All talks and workshops are free for the selected participants. The programme will also cover the organisational cost of the public group presentation.
Ideally your practice should be relevant to photography, moving image or other forms of image making, and you are able to commit to participating in the full programme. Applications are welcome from any educational background and discipline. There is an application fee of £8.
