CMAP will be running the workshops in 2012 - please go along and invest in a print from one of these great photographers, enjoy free refreshments and support the participants of this photography project at the same time!

If you have any photographic prints you would like to donate for auction, there is still time to get involved. Contact Rachel Lowe via the Auction's facebook event for more information.


This Friday 7th of October we have the screening of the feature
length documentary film "Isolation", with Stuart Griffiths and
directed by Luke Seomore and Joseph Bull. It will start at 6pm and
entrance is free, but we more than welcome you dropping some of those
heavy coins into our fundraising hat.

You can find the Facebook link to the event here:

The Friday after, the 14th of October at 7pm, we have the opening of
Sergey Chilikov's "Selected Works". This is a large series of
photographs by the Russian photographer, and due to a fair deal of
nudity not particularly suitable for children. On the other hand, if
you're an adult, you might rather enjoy these beautiful, slightly
grim, and very often humorous pieces. This exhibition has been
possible thanks to Otley Brewing Company, and has been produced with
help from Photographer.Ru and the School of Film, Photography and
Digital Media of Newport University. Schilt Publishing is as well
getting out the book "Sergey Chilikov: Selected Works 1973-", which
will be available at the opening.
