#DCFoodchain photography project recruiting 12 people for free workshops

We are recruiting twelve photographers to take participate in our FREE workshops as part Food Chain. 

Food Chain is a new photographic commission conceived to engage with the food retailers in our community, to strengthen relationships and provide visitors to Seaside Road with an insight into the lives and inspirations of the people behind this food scene.

Eastbourne’s Devonshire Ward is home to a rich variety of food and drinks retailers from around the world. The Seaside Road area of the ward has a particularly vibrant community of restaurants and cafes and is also home to Devonshire Collective’s new gallery, studios, and artists’ workshops.

  • Wednesday 4 April at DC3 – Food Photography
  • Wednesday 2 May at DC3 – Portraiture

Who we are looking for

A team of photographers or want to be photographers with creative flair
You must have some technical ability
You must collaborate with a team of photographers and local businesses
You must have social and organizational skills. This project involves working within a community of food retailers with busy schedules.

The #DCFoodchain will represent the personalities and stories of Seaside Road food retailers by combining their portraits and stories in photographs and texts. These will be displayed in windows and outdoors on Seaside Road and the surrounding area of Devonshire Ward throughout 2018, and in an exhibition at the end of the year.

The #DCFoodchain project will consist 3 participatory workshops on the first Wednesday of each month up to the summer. We aim to involve local photographers in the project. The workshops will take participants through the whole process of creating the body of work.
