Hear from award-winning photographer Craig Easton and socially-engaged practitioners and educators Liz WewioraSuzanne St Clare, and Gwen Riley Jones. Discover the impactful projects, learn about the young talents, and emerging photographers they supported, and the profound effects these initiatives had on the communities involved.

Facilitated by Sarah Lovell (Culture Lead for Liverpool City Region), the symposium will explore the ethical considerations of socially engaged photography and ask “What should we be collecting?”

Expert Speakers include Sarah Fisher (Open Eye Gallery), Lindsay Taylor (University of Salford Art Collection), Laura Jamieson (LeftCoast) and Abdul Aziz Hafiz (Blackburn College). Free to Attend: Limited Availability: Secure your spot!
