Join artist Alicia Monedero for a three-session photography course. The Social Purpose Photography Course is designed to understand and draw inspiration from Lisetta Carmi’s work and help you to translate your ideas into images while also aiming to contribute towards social change.

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the ethics specifically involved in photography with a social purpose and experiment with a range of concepts and materials from our temporary exhibition to create projects, which may be added to a portfolio.

All levels welcome: please bring any type of camera or device, including tablets and mobile phones - no need to have experience or bring professional equipment.
