Abstract

I have organised a two-day photography forum held at the University of Central Lancashire in its Media Innovation Studio. The event showcased a wide range of practitioners, which included Peter Kennard and Magnum's Ian Berry. Both days sold out and engaged photographers, undergraduates and postgraduates in debates centering on contemporary documentary and socially engaged practices. I delivered the inaugural talk to contextualise the event and hosted the proceedings for both days.
