Day: Across the Weekend

Venue: Various

Ticket Required: Explorer

As part of our “Manifesto For A New Wakefield” project, we are proud to be commissioning WE ARE to run a innovative photography project at Long Division 2018. WE ARE a social enterprise working with artists and curating events and collaborative opportunities in Wakefield.

[ foh-toh ] is a photography project curated by WE ARE. Between Wednesday 30th May to Sunday 3rd June WE ARE will be handing out disposable cameras to a group of 30 people.

The project will see WE ARE working with people who have a relationship with Wakefield to document their city. The group will photograph anything they want, such as buildings, friends and family, performances at Long Division, businesses, artworks and exhibitions on the Artwalk and the mundane everyday. Everyone see’s the world in different ways, and WE ARE want to explore that by encouraging people to photograph what they see, and what they want to say about their Wakefield.

The aim of the project is to build an archive of images that WE ARE and Long Division are able to use to promote Wakefield. Select photographs from each participant will later be published in Long Divisions ‘ Manifesto of a new Wakefield’ and exhibited in a group exhibition curated by WE ARE at the July Artwalk.
