WITH-IN

FIRECRACKER 10 YEARS ANNIVERSARY

 

Bristol Photo Festival collaborates with Firecracker to celebrate their 10th year anniversary. Firecracker is an organisation that supports the work of the work of women and non-binary photographers through mentoring programmes, publications, talks and now, for the first time an exhibition entitled With/In. This collaboration brings photographers whose practice moves, with intimacy, through overlooked groups of people. A generation of female and female-identifying photographers is using photography not as a tool of oppression but as instigator of conversations, interventions and collaborations. This exhibition will be accompanied by a talks and events programme.

The Stage

 

The People’s Archive (British Culture Archive) is a popular online resource documenting and preserving crowdsourced images of life in twentieth century Britain. The archive gives a platform and more importantly a voice to a diverse spectrum of people and communities across the UK. It's an important social document that highlights the changes of everyday life, society and culture by the people who lived through it.

A part of the Festival's first edition, we will launch a collaborative photography project with them to collect images about music and subcultures in the UK with a Bristol focus, presenting the results as part of an event including live music.

More information to come.
