A new culture of producing and consuming photographs is in place, challenging the profession of photographer as we once knew it. This is a confusing yet exciting moment, a time to re-think the need for and use of photography. How do we adapt to these changes, and how do we teach photography to the next generation?

During Landskrona Foto Festival 2018, Landskrona Foto in collaboration with Akademin Valand, Nordens Fotoskola, Munka Folkhögskola and Transformations offers a meetingplace for exchanging ideas and experiences, a place for networking.

The conference is open to anyone working with education and training in the eld of photography. It begins late afternoon on thursday the 13th of September and will continue until lunch time the day after. After the conference the regular festival program will begin with its internationla seminar, followed by exhibition openings and much more.

We are looking forward to see you in Landskrona
