Activity During Covid-19:
While the Coronavirus lockdown is a stressful time for many of us, it also provides opportunities to learn and reflect upon our practice.
Over the spring and summer we had planned to run a series of skill sharing events, seminars, conferences and archive tours in partnership with museums, galleries, archives and private collections across the UK to share best practice, knowledge and skills, and to encourage sector networking.
We have had to postpone many of these events for now, so instead we have reached out to respected freelancers and photographic experts from the sector and to PCN's Steering Group to help us deliver a series of online events, which are offered for free and aim to be accessible to as many people as possible.
We would normally charge a ticket price for our events and like many organisations, staff, and freelancers and in the sector that we support, we are experiencing a loss of income right now. This is due to projects and events being cancelled, funding bids we that have been working on are unable to be submitted due to reorganisation of funds, and the loss of ticket income. We ask if you take part in our online events and feel that you can afford to donate, that you do so whilst making your booking. Every donation is appreciated, and will help us continue our work, and enable us to pay more speakers to run online events.
Additionlly we are updating our website, and working with experts to bring you more tool kits and expert advice, keep an eye on our website and twitter for updates.
If you have online events, activites, collections or information you would like PCN to share please get in touch.
