Description

ABOUT THE ROOFTOP COLLECITVE:

Established in 2010, this group is comprised of professional photographers who are mutually developing creative and professional practice.

The collective meets on a monthly basis to present recent works, critique one another's images and practices and, above and beyond all else, simultaneously support and challenge one another in their ongoing journeys within an increasingly competitive field.

JOIN US AT THE NEXT MONTH MEETING: MONDAY 13th FEBRUARY 2017, 6.00-8.00PM (book your place on this page)

This meet-up will incorporate a Professional Development session on 'Growing & Engaging Your Audience'. This 1-hr participatory workshop will be led by Susan Mumford, Art World Entrepreneur and Founder of Be Smart About Art.

The professional development session will be followed by mini-sessions for each attendee, in which you'll share latest work and invite input from other photographers in the room. You'll also be invited to commit to What 3 Things you'll be committing to doing for your creative & professional practice over the next month.
