WEP_2150TRI-POD @ Photofusion | Project Development Workshop

Are you feeling stuck creatively?

Do you need to set goals for your personal project?

Would you benefit from peer support and facilitated feedback to help move your project forward?

This workshop, which includes six sessions, is aimed at photographers and visual artists using photography who have a personal project in progress. “In progress” could mean that you have an idea but haven’t started work, or that you’re currently shooting a body of work, or that you’re wrapping up a project but need to bring it all together. This workshop will support a group of participants in the research and development of a personal project using a variety of different strategies including facilitated peer support. Miranda Gavin facilitate all sessions.

We will look at previous personal projects, develop strategies for creative working practice, and discuss the various challenges and blocks that can prevent a project from moving forward. The last session will include feedback and guidance from two industry professionals who, in the past, have included Laura Noble (Director of L A Noble Gallery (LANG) and writer and curator Sue Steward.

The project can be a documentary, editorial or an art-based body of work. You can be at any stage with the project as long as it is a body of work that is still in progress.

This workshop will take place at Photofusion twice monthly over three months on Thursdays from 18:00 – 21:00. The dates are as follows:

29 September 2016
13 October 2016
27 October 2016
10 November 2016
24 November 2016
1 December 2016

TESTIMONIALS – from previous workshop participants

“First of all thank you for the great opportunity to be part of the tri-pod group. After the workshop I have to say my head felt like a pin ball machine, all the ideas where bouncing from the winning jackpot to direct exit and my certitudes were shaken…
So I got basically exactly why I came for …. 🙂
Once the sediment settled this morning I quickly grabbed my notes and started extracting from the questions and suggestions my own answers. (and ordered tons of books!) I was a portfolio review virgin and it was an amazing first experience, I’m absolutely looking forward for follow up opportunities with Tri-pod, your concept is amazing and thank you for creating such a smart and needed space for artists …”

I just wanted to say thank you for being such brilliant facilitators – it was an intensive weekend, but has given me the boot-up-the-arse I needed and enough feedback to approach my project from a different refreshing angle, which I’d never thought of before….

Thank you so much for the weekend. It was a really great experience and although I still need to digest a lot of the feedback, I already know that I gained a new perspective from the sessions…

I thought the weekend was great! It gave me reassurance and encouragement to move my project forward. It simultaneously broadened and focused my thinking.

I liked the fact that the group were able to get to know each other slowly, and with more depth than on a meeting at a portfolio review, for example…

It was brilliant,helpful,thought provoking and encouraging. Really inspired by the talks with Miranda, Di, Sue and Wendy and, of course, the other photographers and all the different approaches to their projects. It made me realise how out of the loop I have been and that I must do more of the like and take the time to meet up with other photographers for debate and inspiration. I couldn’t have been happier with the day and the feedback.”

“I just wanted to say thanks for organising the workshop, found it really useful and energising! I’ve begun to plan the new version of my project.”

“Thank you so much for a great weekend. I have now got some clear goals and I am already trying to be proactive…!”

Big thanks to you all for making it such a pleasureable weekend! Especially Miranda and Wendy. I came home feelings very motivated to plough on with my project …
