CATALYST is a 7 month mentorship program produced by IC Visual Lab in collaboration with Bristol Photo Festival for those who wish to further their personal career and, importantly, to expand their approach and ways of photographing and exhibiting. The program is open to local based, national and international practitioners who are at the beginning of their creative career. We are aiming to create an intersectional variety of participants that bring a plurality of visions and approaches. Through this program we hope to offer a long term opportunity to 6 photographers who will receive support from a team of mentors with experience in various creative fields (artists, curators, designers, editors, arts management…). The aim is for participants to continue and finish a body of work to be exhibited as part of the exhibitions 2021 Spring program in Bristol.

"This programme seeks to emphasise the importance of the creative process with the help of a, experienced team of mentors that will challenge and guide participants into a more energetic and experimental approach towards photography”

The mentoring program will be mainly delivered using online platforms so the participants won’t need to travel to attend every session.
