The second edition of our photobook critique club, designed for those at the beginning of a photobook journey, or reflecting on something published a wee while ago.

If you've been searching for somewhere to talk about your book-making process, to share your work, workings-out and dummies, or to look back on a book with the benefit of hindsight and discuss what you may do differently now... this is for you.

Please email once you have booked a ticket if you plan on presenting so that we know roughly how many attendees are bringing work to share. Of course it is fine not to bring work, sharing your thoughts is absolutely fine too!

Participants presenting work are encouraged to bring sequenced prints, mock-ups, or dummy copies of the book you will be speaking about. We will also have a projector in case you want to show digital content, but it would be nice to have something tangible to pass around where possible. If you are sharing a finished product, feel free to bring a few additional copies for us to stock post-event ( we can explain how this works on the night)!

Practicalities //
Like all of our events, this does require a minimum attendance to go ahead, so please book earlier rather than last-minute. If we don't get enough interest we may have to cancel (at which point your donation will be refunded in full). Snacks will be provided!

Ticketing //
This is a ticketed event with limited capacity and you must book in order to attend. Tickets work on a sliding scale, and all proceeds help AGITATE continue to operate and programme events like this. The recommended ticket price is £4, but those who can pay more allow us to keep a sliding scale in place. We do not receive public funding, and your donations ensure the survival of spaces like this, during a really diffcult time for small businesses.

Accessibility //
This event will be seated, and will take place in the main gallery. The gallery is wheelchair accessible, and 6 William Street has an accessible toilet on the basement level, accessible via lift. There is a quiet breakout space downstairs if needed.
