Photography as art practice used to help communities

The Open Eye Gallery presents, Culture Shifts: Local, a new exhibition of collaboratively produced photography from eight socially engaged projects across Liverpool. The event is for free.

The launch of the event is on October 6th, with speeches and a special poem reading in response to the Winds of Change Culture Shifts project.

Photography is a language of its own and it's a powerful tool to express oneself. The exhibition will present photography as an art practice that can be used to help communities to define themselves, bridge cultural divides and communicate the vital issues of today.

This selection of work will be presented at Open Eye Gallery throughout this Autumn, with an additional solo offsite exhibition for each project in the neighbourhood of each community featured.

The projects are all part of the citywide, long-term Culture Shifts project.

Each of the eight projects involves selected photographers working alongside one or more groups, including a support and services network for women, residents of Granby Four Streets (site of the Turner Prize-winning Assemble project), and youth groups dedicated to LGBTQ support and Youth Parliament.
