The Social is a regular and lively evening event that aims to provide practical information for artists and photographers in a social environment.
Advice given by photographers and industry specialists is beneficial for people at all stages of their career, from the newly graduated to the seasoned professional.
At The Social, the audience is encouraged to enjoy a drink, discuss, and most of all, socialise. Join the conversation over beer and peanuts.
Practitioners from differing perspectives, including Eleanor Macnair & Patricia Karallis offer tips and working techniques around online platforms in this event, Instagram / Tumblr = Promotion / Research.
