The website for the Look2011 Liverpool International Photography Festival launched tonight and very nice it looks too. Well done Loaf Creative. Artinliverpool will be supporting and publicising the events of course but all the up to date info will be on the look11 website which will be quite interactive with a forum, uploads etc. They’re also facebooking and twittering.
Photography as a ‘call to action’ will be the central theme of Look2011, the first photography festival to be staged in Liverpool, and is set within the context of Liverpool’s Year of Social Justice and City of Radicals in 2011. Events will take place at galleries and exhibition spaces across Merseyside and will showcase significant new bodies of work by emerging and established photographers from both home and abroad. Look2011 will launch with a four-day event in May 2011 featuring exhibition openings, artists’ talks, workshops and will play host to the 3rd National Photography Symposium.
