Sixteen: talk and panel discussion

A free lecture and panel discussion from photographers Craig Easton, Michelle Sank and Jillian Edelstein about their contributions to the multimedia project Sixteen, which explores the dreams, hopes and fears of sixteen year-olds across the UK.

Sixteen is an age of transition, of developmental, and of social change. At this time of increasing national and international anxiety, these young people are shifting from adolescence to become the adults who will live in a politically reshaped country, divorced from the European Union.

This event is especially for local photography students (whether at Uni, college, sixth form, or independent) and anyone who is interested in socially-engaged photographic practice.

Date: Friday 15 February, 2 – 4pm
Venue: Lady Hale Lecture Theatre, University of Salford, M5 4NT
Admission: Free, booking required.

The lecture will be immediately followed by public previews of Sixteen at: New Adelphi Gallery and Atrium, University of Salford – 4.30pm, Friday 15 February 2019. HOME, Manchester, 7.30pm, Friday 15 February 2019.
