PhotoEast believes photography can bring positive change for individuals and communities. The theme for the 2018 PhotoEast Festival is ‘Belonging’ – the Waterfront will become a public gallery, presenting local life next to contemporary photography.
Visit the Jerwood DanceHouse on Saturday 26 May to take part in a collaboration between Tim Casson and local photographic artist, Bill Jackson. An installation of photos will provide the backdrop for dancers who will perform a ‘dancing postcard’ created by collecting the memories and stories you share.
Nina Mangalanayagam’s Tangled Web of Belonging will be on show upstairs in the Whistler Gallery throughout the festival. Also at the Jerwood DanceHouse on Sunday 27 May, Julian Germain and Ipswich Town FC supporters will discuss The People’s History, an exhibition exploring what it means to belong to the Blues.
This is a free event.
