Photography festival gets Wellington talking

Photography festival gets Wellington talking

26 April

Photival is Wellington's documentary photography festival focusing on vital social, economic and environmental issues.

Photival is back for its second year, 26-29 April, curating inspiring and engaging talks and workshops to increase and stimulate visual literacy and social awareness in New Zealand. The programme will present the best photographers, photographic educators, commentators, curators and editors in Aotearoa, as well as drawing on expertise from a range of other sectors including journalism, NGOs and technology.

With panelists such as Nicky Hager, Ann Shelton, Robbie Nicol, Nina Tonga and Geoffrey Batchen the conversation will be fresh, robust and relevant. Spanning topics such as fake news; national and social issues presented through photography; and image authenticity in a digitally saturated media, Photival is is a timely exploration of how our world is being shaped through the images we see.

Australian based keynote speaker, Michael Hall, shares his compelling work capturing the human impact and contribution to climate change. Having travelled the world documenting this global process his work provides a rare insight to the diversity of landscapes and devastation affecting our plant.
