Head On Photo Festival has announced highlight events for its diverse public program presented entirely online. Running from May 1-17, Australia's leading annual international photography event will present over 100 exhibitions and a daily program of over 80 online events.
The 2020 program features more than 50 artist talks and panel discussions presented by internationally celebrated photographers and leading industry professionals from around the globe and a series of free photography workshops led by award winning photographers including Oded Wagenstein and experts from Adobe and Sony.
"Head On Photo Festival prides itself on presenting not only international quality exhibitions but creating a space for cutting edge discussion and learning for both the public and professional photographers alike," said Head On Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig OAM. "Going digital has amplified this and allowed us to draw on our incredible international community to present a remarkable public program that stretches five continents. In these challenging times when community is needed more than ever, the 2020 Festival offers a platform for learning, discussion, new ideas and community support - we can't wait to see you all online soon!"
Every day of the Festival, audiences will be able to access predominantly live streamed artist talks, panel discussions and photography workshops for the general public, children and photography professionals. The majority of these events will include audience participation through live Q&A sessions, social sessions and hands-on workshops that all seek to encourage diverse and engaging conversation.
