The artists will deliver short talks about their work and practice over the last year. At the end of the talks there will also be a panel discussion.

The artists will discuss a wide array of visual themes from documentary based imagery to fine art and editorial.

The pop up exhibition will run alongside the artist talks. There will be artist prints for sale, with food and drink stalls also in the area.

Join us for a day of photography, MPF and RPS exhibition tours and student artist talks, with street food by Bristol Eats and a pop-up bar by Lost and Grounded.
