Photoworks presents Collaborate at Free Range

A new exhibition by Photoworks celebrates its varied collaborations. Collaborate is on from now until Sunday, July 1.

Collaboration is central to Photoworks’ way of working. It works with artists on exhibitions, events and through digital platforms.

At Free Range, Photoworks will present an exhibition celebrating some of the many artists it has worked with and run three days of free events connecting artists and sharing knowledge.

All events are free. Places must be booked in person at Free Range and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Events are open to all and of particular interest to recent photography graduates.
