How do you provide a platform for marginalised voices? How do you communicate violence and conflict through art? How do you represent a culture or individual through a photograph? 

Emerging Curator Jamila Prowse explores issues of representation and identity through a guided tour of some of BPF16’s central hubs. Visiting ONCA gallery, our Outdoor Hub and Phoenix Brighton, the tour will provide key insights into photography as a method of empowerment. Featured photographers and collectives present new approaches to representation, such as participatory photography. The trail will include The Lithuanian Project, Welcome to Our Jungle, Dana Ariel: Encountering Perforated Ground and Having Our Say3. The tour will include special introductions from Dana Ariel, winner of the OPEN16 Solo, and Clare Struthers whose project Welcome to Our Jungle was created with the people of the Calais refugee camp.

This year there will be three Saturday morning tours devised by the BPF trainee curators taking a number of different routes around some of the 40 exhibitions in the festival. 
Choose the tour that matches your interest or take them all. 
It’s a wonderful way to explore the city and see a whole range of new photography.
