Stirling Photography Festival 2023 – Announce Programme of Events

Stirling Photography Festival has announced this year’s theme of REFLECT and the festival programme can be found here.

Featuring The Light Around Us – a workshop on portraiture with photographer John Patton. An exhibition curated by Street Level Photoworks in partnership with Tolbooth Gallery, Mirror/Mirror  features work by Spencer Dent, June Barton and Joanna Stawnicka – each artist takes a performative approach in their practice to explore themes around the uncanny, the personal, gender, and grief. A talk from artist, researcher and lecturer David Grinly plus much much more!

The Stirling Photography Festival runs throughout August and is an inclusive celebration of community. Our mission is to develop skills, create opportunities, and build relationships through a series of events, workshops, and exhibitions. Partnering with some of photography’s newest and finest talent from across the World, our aim is to connect our community through photography.

Our vision is to establish the Stirling Photography Festival as an annual event in Scotland’s events calendar. Our strengths are in the fact that we are truly a community festival, led by a diverse team of enthusiastic volunteers drawn from school, university, community and business backgrounds.
