Rocket Artists present: What happens when I take your picture?

Rocket Studio, Phoenix Brighton, every Friday in October, 1-4pm

A project exploring curation, photographs and interactions between artists who use photography. Phoenix Artists will be invited to open up their studios and portfolios while Rocket Artists investigate the practice of taking and curating photographs. The emergent process and evolving exhibition will be visible on Instagram @rocket_artists and in the Rockets Studio.

Come and watch it evolve!

Rocket Artists are a group of artists with learning disabilities who have been funded by Arts Council England since 2006. They make visual artwork and performance in their own studio alongside a community of over 100 other artists at Phoenix Brighton.
