PhotoVoice Newsletter

July 2016

Hello and welcome to our July Newsletter!

This month we interview the award winning photographer Laura Pannack on her approach to photography, and PhotoVoice exhibits at the Atelier photography festival.

In support of Refugee Week, we're running a series of news items, including refugees living in South London sharing their thoughts through photography, photographers Paul Hill and Maria Falconer experiencing life with ‘the illegals’ - a community of refugees living between borders; and Bobby Smith, an Applied Theatre and Community Education Facilitator, explores participatory arts programmes in Tindouf refugee camps. Elsewhere, the photographer Alexander Mourant concludes his journey through Africa with the RAW foundation, an organisation that aims to reduce plastic and promote sustainable re-usable solutions.

PhotoVoice members should now have received the fourth issue of Photo Voices. Don’t forget to renew your membership or sign up to receive the magazine as well as other exciting discounts and opportunities.
