Socially Engaged Development



As part of our professional development programme, Photofusion is pleased to offer a new course for photographers and lens-based artists interested in exploring socially engaged practice in their work. The course will run as a series of five evening sessions, featuring guest speakers and practical activities with follow up 1-2-1 support. Each session will explore key concepts to consider when in working in this way, including artist methodologies and theoretical ideas surrounding representation and ethics.

If you are considering exploring these ideas in your images, or want to consider more deeply the role of social practice in your way of working, this course will provide an overview of theories and concepts to support you to do so.

The course is completely free and is part funded generously by the European Regional Development Fund. Therefore to qualify you must:

  • have a London postcode
  • have been registered as self employed for over a year
  • have a HMRC tax return
