Apply: Stills School – CONTACT (16 – 25 year olds)

Stills School is an alternative photography school for 16-25 year olds who face barriers to accessing the arts. The school is free of charge. All materials and equipment are provided, and we can cover travel expenses too.


Contact is an introductory 8 week photography course that will teach you basic photography skills as well as encourage you to develop your own projects. You don’t need any experience in making photographs, just a passion for photography.

In a small group you will learn about different photographers and be supported to find your own style. Whether you prefer analogue or digital, we’ll make sure you feel confident using your new skills. Everyone will have prints to take home or download at the end of the course.

Who should apply for CONTACT?
This is for young people aged 16-25 who face barriers to accessing the arts. We are looking for young people who are keen to try something new.

You will also be eligible to gain your Bronze Arts Award during Contact (but this is not mandatory).

Contact will run from 12th May – 30th June, Fridays 2-5pm at Stills
