Tri-pod is calling for applicants for its one-day Personal Photo Project Development workshop to be held @ Roof Unit in London. Facilitators in the afternoon are Diane Smyth (Deputy editor of British Journal of Photography), Miranda Gavin (Co-founder Tri-pod and deputy editor Hotshoe) and Sue Steward (arts writer and critic).
Day workshop runs from 10.00am – 5.30am. Cost £85 for the day, includes a light lunch. 12 participants maximum. As we are not funded, we are charging a fee for the day that takes into consideration the costs of running a workshop, developing the course, and paying the people we invite to facilitate. Given the current and dire climate for arts funding, we want to set up a self-sustaining initiative with a professional approach that acknowledges and compensates everyone we invite fairly.
A great deal of self-promotion takes place via social networks and blogs and I recently came across a site advising that, as a rule of thumb, only 1:10 messages should be self-interest related, otherwise it smacks of self-promotion. With this in mind, I’m conscious of making such a call but think that it is within reason.
