Call for Photographs!
We are looking for ANY photographs of London road from today, yesterday and the years gone by for our slideshow projection for White Night (31st October). We will be screening images of the area projected in the Open Market near our current space.
If you have any photographs from the 90′s, 80′s 70′s and so forth we would love to hear from you! It doesn’t matter on the quality of your photography, if you wouldn’t mind helping us collect images, your image will be credited and you will get to be a part of this exciting one night exhibition event!
If you have an image please email Phil : email@example.com or give me a call on 07984349058!

Many thanks to all those who came down and participated in the workshop! Look out for more information on the next event!
WORKSHOP 1 taking place Friday 13th August – Portraits of the local community 9am-6pm – come down and get involved.
Part of the space obtained by CompARTment for temporary use (initially 3 months) will be used as an interactive studio space for local lens-based artistic practitioners. The Photography Collective will document, inform, encourage and engage with the surrounding community and on-going CompARTment projects. The artists and photographers involved will produce a body of work related to the surrounding area whilst also running various interactive community based projects alongside for the local area.
We are still welcoming photographers to join this collective – please contact via the Photographers Collective sign-up form below and one of our Photographers team will contact you!
Aims and Objectives
• To engage with the public and local businesses in the community through photography.
• To bring business to the local market through engagement with the public.
• To offer an Artistic hub for all creative practitioners to make use of through a variety of interactive mediums such as workshops, creative discussions, critical focus groups and portfolio reviews.
• To provide a format for 7-10 local photographic artists to produce a piece of work or series of images about the London road area.
The studio/garage space will be used as a hub or base for up to 10 lens-based artists. Each individual artist will conduct their own body of work over the course of the 3 months, documenting the local landscape, people and communities. Each practitioner will have a diverse approach in their work, engaging with the area in very different ways. Each artist would commit to at least ½ – 1 day a week to photograph. The studio space will be a warm inviting, relaxing and creative space where people can discuss ideas, display work, work on their projects and engage with each other and the surrounding community. For the first period of the project, the photographers involved will cover the walls in artwork and information about the project and themselves. As the work progresses, the walls will be filled with sketches, contact sheets, working prints, and finally work from each photographer’s project.
Each artist will also be involved in running various community based workshops and events. Events will include photographic and educational workshops (led by an experienced photographic teacher), portfolio reviews, treasure hunts, creative discussions, projections, critique groups and exhibitions. We would encourage other photographers to use it for meeting space (buying refreshments from the local community). The space will also be open for other members of the public to come and view the work and engage more in photography within an interactive environment.
The project will finish at the start of one of the biggest photography festivals in the UK, Brighton Photo Biennial and the sideline Brighton Photo Fringe. The project will pursue an exhibition space for the artists involved to display their work once the studio space lease is terminated.
