Engaging in Urban Image-making is a one-day symposium hosted by the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR) at Goldsmiths, University of London, which brings together practitioners from: Sociology Goldsmiths, Photojournalism London College of Communication, Urban Photographers Association and London Independent Photography. Its purpose is to begin a dialogue across organisations about how we engage with urban life in our image-making practices in the 21st century. Through the presentation of a diverse selection of visual stories, we are keen to address how image making can support our understanding of some of the complexities associated with contemporary urban life.
This event has been organised by Anita Strasser and Gill Golding, and is supported by CUCR, the Graduate School Fund, and Urban Photographers Association.
