Photoworks delivers a year round programme of learning and participation opportunities. However, every two years the Biennial creates an incredible, city-wide, month-long festival with a wealth of opportunities to celebrate, make, talk about and enjoy all kinds of photography.
We are committed to creating opportunities for everyone to take part and have ensured that learning and participation is intrinsic to BPB14 with an extensive array of workshops, talks, tours, seminars and screenings on offer, as well as events designed specifically for teachers, young people, and families.
A number of the exhibitions in the programme present work created earlier in the year for BPB14 by young people and communities as part of the Photoworks learning and participation programme, and alongside this, through ongoing partnerships with Widening Participation programmes at the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex, we are engaging increasing numbers of school students through guided exhibition tours and workshops led by specially trained arts undergraduates, utilizing the wealth of expertise and talent of Brighton’s student community.
The learning and participation programme has been developed collaboratively in partnership with other organisations in order to widen and intensify their impact, and we would like to thank all of our partners and supporters.
Brighton Photo Biennial is popular with group visits. All exhibitions are free, but if you are organising a group visit, we urge you to check opening hours and make use of the BPB14 online resources for teachers. Get in touch, we can help schedule your visit and may be able to send you advance brochures, or connect your visitors with the BPB team during their visit.
