Event description

Description

Explore what photography means to young people today.

All over the world, young people are increasingly using photography to communicate with each other and formulate their identities. Here, we present an evening discussion on how photographers, educators and youth engagement leaders can work with young people effectively through photography.

The event invites speakers from cultural, heritage, education, and youth services together to discuss how photography can be used as a tool for learning, creativity and wider issues around wellbeing through self-representation.

We will be reflecting upon two current collaborative photography projects with young people from across the region as a basis for our discussion. The event will be an opportunity to hear more about our recent heritage lottery funded project, Our North, working with young people from across Sefton and Runcorn to explore northern identity, fashion and heritage. You can also pick up a copy of the final publication produced as part of the project.

Attendees will also be able to see our current Whitby High School photography exhibition, the result of our first major collaborative project with the school.

Open Eye Gallery's Creative Producer Liz Wewiora will be chairing the evening discussions. The event is free but spaces are limited so please book to reserve a seat.

Guest speakers include: Andy Yates (Open Eye Gallery, young people's coordinator), Angela Whitehead (Power in Partnerships, Runcorn), Andy Kelly (Heritage Lottery Fund), Thom Isom (Designer and collaborator on Our North publication), Rob Hancock and members of Sefton Youth Voice (Sefton Youth Prevention team) and Alice Demba (Liverpool Learning Partnerships)
