Arts Development UK

Three years ago I was commissioned as the Photographer in Residence for the NALGAO (National Association of Local Government Arts Officers) annual conference which was held at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

The underpinning theme of the conference was the contribution that the arts and creative industries make in building sustainable communities and supporting regeneration.

The conference was a huge success and I had a fantastic time photographing keynote speakers, workshops and cultural study tours. Earlier this year, NALGAO rebranded itself as Arts Development UK and decided to come back to Blackpool for the first time since 2008. I’m pleased to say that I was asked back once again to undertake the role of Photographer in Residence.

NALGAO Photography Residency

NALGAO Conference Photography Residency

Last month I was offered a three day photography residency to creatively document NALGAO’s annual conference. Entitled ‘NALGAO Switched On!’, the conference focussed on “the contribution that the arts and creative industries make in building sustainable communities and supporting regeneration”.

The NALGAO conference has become a key date in the national arts calendar and is an important event for local authorities and their delegates.

This annual event is held at a different venue each year, with this years being held at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool. The aim of my NALGAO photography residency was to document a creative account of the event, including keynote speakers, breakout sessions and study tours.
