Be inspired by 2021’s John Moores Painting Prize exhibition and Xaviera Simmons’ Liverpool Biennial exhibition and learn new photography skills with Photoworks. Award winning photographer Alejandra Carles-Tolra will work with participants to explore how portraiture, language and landscape construct identity, as well as the relationship between painting and photography.

This series of 2 workshops specifically for 18-24 year olds will explore themes of representation and identity, playful methods of exploring photography and how to curate artwork. 

All you will need is a camera or phone to take photos with and a laptop and internet to join the live workshops.
