Re-Framing Culture : Training Programme, in partnership with the Socially Engaged Photography Network

Re-Framing Culture

Re-Framing Culture was a six-week training programme designed for museum, gallery, library, and independent photography and arts professionals  to explore the potential value and impact of delivering socially engaged photography commissions.

Working with lead partner Open Eye, GRAIN devised and delivered the  programme in the Midlands.   Presenters and advisors on the programme included  Anand Chhabra, Anthony Luvera, Clare Hewitt, and Liz Wewiora. The call was open to photographers, artists, curators, and producers from diverse backgrounds and experiences, encompassing recent graduates, self-trained individuals, and seasoned culture professionals.   Participation was free and the programme was supported by the Art Fund.

Sessions covered both the theory and artistic practice of socially engaged lens-based media, along with presentations of case studies and discussions about logistical and ethical considerations.  Partners in this national programme were Open Eye Gallery, Heart of Glass, GRAIN Projects, NEPN (North East Photography Network), and Fotonow CIC, all of which are members of the Socially Engaged Photography Network (SEPN).
