Stop the Flow! Brings young people and practitioners together to explore, create and discuss photography and social media.
Through a series of workshops devised by PhotoLab at LCC and 2nd year BA Photography students, in conjunction with Autograph-ABP, we will explore how to gain a greater sense of individual and creative autonomy and social responsibility in relation to social media.
Over three days, participants will work with Leyla Reynolds, Adrian Wood and Erica Scourti to take photographs, print and create a display of work each day. Participants will also take inspiration from some of the experimental approaches on view in the exhibitions and displays at Tate.
Drop in and see what we're up to. Find out what it's like being a photography student. What does it mean to have a critical perspective? What kind of questions are asked and how do we develop a creative voice? ... How do we become creative producers of the future?
This event is programmed by London College of Communication a Tate Exchange Associate.
About the Associates
Photolab is a new centre for experimental thinking in photography at London College of Communication. It has emerged from the London College of Communication Photography Programme, long known for its critical and experimental approach to the medium. The open-ended nature of fine art thinking is important to our pedagogy, whether students find their future careers in the arts or media.
University of the Arts London has a proactive approach to widening participation, and with Autograph ABP has developed Album, a photography project aimed at young people studying creative subjects in partner schools and colleges.
Autograph ABP is a charity that works internationally in photography and film, cultural identity, race, representation and human rights. Access to Autograph ABP’s archive and exhibitions programme informs the research and exploration of photography for young people participating in the Album project each year.
