I will be presenting research from Relative Poverty at the Money, Security and Social Policy Network launch event at the London School of Economics on 2 November. I will be focusing on how research can reach the public, especially when the research doesn’t fit the media’s agenda.
On a similar note, on 8 November I will be running a workshop called ‘Ways of Looking: finding social haunting in contemporary documentary photography’ asking how photography can point to the unseen and the unheard, as part of the Songlines conference at the People’s History Museum, Manchester. I will look through through a social haunting lens at photographs of Dave’s living room, from the Relative Poverty project. Email Dr Sarah McNicol for a place – S.McNicol@mmu.ac.uk
Relative Poverty is touring Doncaster’s libraries until June 2018 and can currently be seen at Bawtry and Bessacarr Community Libraries until 17 November. A talk and discussion about the issues raised will take place at Bawtry Community Library at 10am on 17 November.
I will also speak at the Old Market in Brighton on the 28 November as part of the Mini Clicks photography talks. The night also features Curtis James.
