How does it work?

Use #wearexperimenting to submit your photographs to our experiments, or photographic challenges. You can submit by posting on your own Instagram, Facebook or Twitter accounts. This means that you keep control of your own image. You have the power to withdraw your photograph at any time via your own social media and it will simply disappear from the Feed.

By using social media we are enabling people who don’t usually go to workshops to get involved as well. 

If we all post using #wearexperimenting then we will be able to create a continually growing and completely interactive online exhibition. It’s in your hands! Keep it clean!
