The SHIFTS project offers a new series of talks and peer discussions, workshops and symposiums, exploring the shifting landscape for the production of meaningful photographic work and the ways in which relationships with audience are evolving. As we move into a period of recovery and repositioning beyond Covid, we aim to explore how photographers can adapt to changing contexts whilst looking forward, considering new opportunities and sharing strategies for developing resilience.
