The photography slideshow event is a phemonenon that has recently been called ‘thenewblack’. Having taken off in the US around 2000, its popularity has since spread and it’s about time it arrived in the North East!
Taking place at the BlackSwanBar & Theatre, the event will combine projections of slideshows curated from ASA Collectives’ impressive back catalogue with those of five specially selected North East photographers. North East photographers interested in having slideshows produced for inclusion in this event should submit their work by Monday 30th May – for the call for submissions details and T&Cs, followthislink.
The programme for the first part of the event will be the work of five selected North East Photographers.
The programme for the second part of the event will be:
This is an opportunity for North East photographers to discover the work of some of their regional peers alongside that of a curated selection of national and international contemporary artists. Slideshows are lively social events, and discussions between and after projections are a feature.
The show starts at 7pm sharp (this is a projection so please arrive at least fifteen minutes earlier to grab a drink and find a seat). After the show the bar will remain open so discussions can continue.
ASA + NEPN = SLIDESHOW!

ABOUT ASA COLLECTIVE
ASA Collective is a London-based non-profit photography collective founded in August 2010. Its members are photographers Armando Ribeiro and Arun Nangla, and interactive motion designer Mariana Santos.
ASA believes that visual storytelling can be used as a vehicle to promote reflection and discussion on local, national and global issues. Since it was founded, its members have worked together to devise and produce a series of educational and photographic projects of which their monthly slideshow events, showcasing the work of both established and emerging contemporary photographers, are the most widely recognised. ASA has also recently collaborated with Wideyed on ‘Mapping the Flâneur’, an installation commissioned by Photo Festivals for the Collectives Encounter at Format International Photography Festival 2011.
