Print Swap Party Fundraiser 2017
Wednesday 19th July
19:00 – 22:00
For the second year running we are hosting our Print Swap Party Fundraiser
The Photofusion Print Swap Party is a chance for photographers, and lovers of photography to get together, have a drink and swap prints. The Print Swap Party is OPEN TO ALL.
What is a Print Swap Party?
Good question…it’s a little confusing, so hopefully this example will make it make sense.
- Penny Pentax arrives at the party with her print
- She hangs her print on a numbered string
- She has a drink (on us) and catches up with her friend Hamish Hasselblad
- After an hour or so, everyone’s prints are up. Penny and Hamish pick a number from a hat, and find out what print they got
- Penny gets number 18, which is amazing, because it’s actually a signed print by her favourite artist Cassius Canon
There are a few simple rules to this fairly complicated process…
- you don’t need to be an award winning photographer
- but you can be
- all prints must be unframed and unmounted
- you don’t need to bring a photographic print
- whatever you bring, it does need to be yours to give away
- if you don’t bring a print, you can’t enter the swap
- but you can still come for the party
As well as a chance to pick up a great print, this is going to be a great big party. We’ve got DJs, a bar, and a drink on us to say thank you for helping us keep going.
See you there!
