Picturing England’s High Streets

Opportunity for Socially Engaged Photographers

Photoworks are excited to launch the first four Open Calls for Picturing England’s High Streets, a major commission with Historic England that will see artists undertaking residencies at high street locations across England. The Open Calls for the photographer-in-residence programmes are linked to specific High Streets Heritage Action Zones, working with partners GRAIN Projects in Coventry and Stoke, and Open Eye Gallery in Chester and Prescot. They are looking for photographers whose practice is socially engaged to work with local communities to reimagine the high street, producing images that will become part of the Historic England Archive. The selected photographers will work with local communities to create a contemporary portrait of England’s high streets between now and 2024.

Picturing England’s High Streets is part of the High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme, four years of nationwide cultural activity helping to make people feel proud of their high streets.
