Picturing England's High Streets
Picturing England's High Streets is a major commission that will see six artists undertaking residencies at high street locations across England.
The selected photographers will work with local communities to create a contemporary portrait of England's high streets between now and 2024.
Photoworks has been commissioned to run the project in partnership with photography organisations and local communities in:
- Prescot and Chester (with Open Eye Gallery)
- Coventry and Stoke-on-Trent (with GRAIN Projects)
- Leicester (with QUAD/ FORMAT)
- London (with Photofusion)
Photographers will be selected via a free open call.
The Photoworks commission is part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme, led by Historic England.
We are very pleased to have been appointed lead partner for Picturing England’s High Streets - an ambitious programme which provides exciting opportunities for photographers and local communities across High Streets in England. We will work with a range of arts organisations to facilitate this four year project and look forward to engaging with communities across the country.
