In this youth-led discussion, gain insight into contemporary curatorial practices and emerging trends, as well as understanding the importance of reaching audiences from a range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

DIY for under 25s

Learn how to make photographs using a generative photographic process called lumen printing in this workshop led by contemporary artist and lecturer in photography James Farley. Rather than using a camera to take photographs of a subject, a lumen print is a photograph made with a subject. Lumen prints are photographs that involve collaboration and chance. Try your hand at creating your own unique photographic object using flora and found objects.

All experience levels are welcome and all materials are provided.

This workshop is open to participants aged 15 to 25.
