Come to a networking meeting
Want to meet the BPF team and network with photographic and lens-based peers? Then come along to one of our regular meetings.
Tuesday 19th Feb 2013
18:30 - 20:30
Upstairs at The Caroline of Brunswick
(We regret this venue is only accessible by stairs, please contact us if you have any questions about access).
Over recent months we've discussed: fundraising, venue management, curation, collaborative practice and general festival preparation. But they're also a great chance to open up discussion about the issues and subjects you're interested in. What would you like a meeting to focus on? Get in touch, we'd love to hear from you firstname.lastname@example.org
You are Brighton Photo Fringe. The festival exists because you as exhibitors and participants make it what it is. The Fringe is here as an organisation to provide you with the platform through which to show your work to large audiences and promote photography and lens-based media on a local, national and international scale.
Whether you've never exhibited your work before, or are a seasoned Brighton Photo Fringer, there are opportunities to take part.
We are a small team and welcome help from enthusiastic volunteers to help out where needed.
During a festival year there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the festival as a volunteer: help with exhibition install, assist at an event, help us market the festival, or photograph what's going on.
To find out about our current volunteer opportunity, please view the PDF.

You don't have to exhibit to take part. Come along to a networking meeting, visit an exhibitions, attend an event, or participate in the online projects. We welcome all audiences and look forward to meeting you!
