Join us at the Manuka Arts Centre, or online via live streaming, for a journey into the past. PhotoAccess was was converted from a derelict building in Kingsley Street in 1984. A group of local and enthusiastic photographers formed the beginnings of the community we see today. Their aim was to make low cost photographic facilities available to the community; encourage the use of photography in areas of personal and political growth; provide a non-competitive cooperative environment where anyone could learn and practice photography; offer workshops, courses and seminars on aesthetic and technical aspects of photographic practice; support the development of community arts, and work with other community arts organisations to further common aims.
Together we will delve in to the histories of the PhotoAccess organisation from then until now. With stakeholders past and present, we will ask the complex question of how do we stay true to the aims of the original members? What has PhotoAccess meant for photographic culture and its community over time? Further, how do we define photographic culture?
