Education has always been one of the cornerstones of Street Level Photoworks. Work in this area is broad and inclusive, embracing work with community groups, artist's collaborations in urban and rural settings, projects for schools and with agencies working across areas of inclusion, social justice and equalities.
We create opportunities for diverse members of the public to engage in creative opportunities, regardless of cultural or social background. We also create dynamic opportunities for artists to collaborate with communities/ groups/ individuals. The education programme consists of: gallery talks and debates; gallery tours and activities for schools and colleges; community based programmes with diverse groups; skills based training for the general public and professional development for young artists and photographers.
A cross-section example of past projects include:
Our award winning project multi-story, a collaborative arts programme based in the Red Road housing estate, ran from 2004-2013. Watch the film on our camera obscura and pinhole photography project from 2009 via our YouTube channel: Red Road Camera Obscura
Future Memory in Red Road was Street Level's final community event at the Red Road in 2013 (and the conclusion to multi-story), a short clip from this event can also be viewed on our YouTube channel: Future Memory
A more recent development in our education programme is the Photography on Screen series, a partnership with Regional Screen Scotland exploring a new way of presenting photography to new audiences. These original video works were first broadcast on the Screen Machine mobile cinema, which serves over 40 remote and island communities across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Those which have previously run are available to watch via our YouTube channel: Photography on Screen
