PICS Festival 2012: Photographic Images Changing Society

In May 2012 Globalnet21­ and PhotoVoice are collaborating to present the PICS Festival, celebrating the role that photography can play in changing society for the better.

The one-day festival will take place in the Hub Westminster and will feature a photographic exhibition showcasing the output of a variety of projects by organisations and individuals that aim to bring about positive social change through photography, alongside a programme of talks, panel discussions and workshops (including Sensory Photography, Visual Literacy, Self-Portraiture and Identity). The festival will feature examples of photojournalism, participatory photography, citizen journalism and sensory photography, among others.

In the lead up to the Festival a number of activities and events will take place to raise public and press interest in the topic, including meetings, webinars, exhibitions and podcasts.

PICS Festival is a collaboration between PhotoVoice and debate platform GlobalNet21.

GlobaNet21 has developed over four years to bring new audiences of people into discussions about 21st Century issues using social networks to make the initial contact. In this it has been very successful and gets good audiences for physical meetings and webinars, and has recently explored the use of podcasts and e-learning tools.

However, many marginalised and vulnerable people and groups have not always been connected to these discussions and debates and innovative ways need to be developed to reach out to them in an inclusive “public square”. This is one way we hope to do it.

If you are interested in exhibiting at the Festival, or getting involved in any other way, please email
