Artists and Photographers that took part in the GRAIN and FORMAT/QUAD Masterclass Programme 19/20 have produced a programme of online activities to share their individual projects, group curated publication and website to showcase their work.
The programme takes place throughout July and August and includes Instagram Live conversations with participants led by Niamh Treacy (FORMAT/QUAD), Laura O’Leary (FORMAT/QUAD) and Stephen Burke (GRAIN). The participants will also take part in an online Photo Café in partnership with Photo Forum where they will discuss their group collaborative work.
Mark’s ongoing project looks at dads who are the majority child-carer in their family. Whilst improving, women are still the primary parent in 89% of UK families. This responsibility is the largest contributing factor to the gender pay gap in western economies. Normalising our view of male child-carers will be a key component for achieving parity in society.
