Visual Storytelling – An Opening Photography Exhibition by The South West Collective

We are delighted to announce that our long-awaited opening photography exhibition, “Visual Storytelling”, will be taking place from Sunday the 9th of February 2020, until Wednesday the 26th of February, in a disused shop unit located at Fleetwalk along Torquay Highstreet. This will be Torquays first serious photography exhibition in several years, perhaps ever!

Visual Storytelling will exhibit the work of 6 outstanding photographers who have told extraordinary stories through their images. Alongside our exhibition, we will be running a series of evening talks from fantastic local photographers, artists and members of the community. These talks seek to educate and inspire members of our community, while we all work together to push for a better society and world. We are also pleased to announce that we will be working in cooperation with charities and organisations to educate school children and the community on not only the arts, but a multitude of issues that currently affect our society such as Mental Health, Drugs, Knife Crime and much more.

As expected the costs of running these events are significant. We successfully raised £250 earlier in the year but a change of circumstances has forced us to raise more. In order to fulfil our ambitious education and talks plan, we need to raise more money to cover these operating costs.

Linked below is our crowdfunding campaign. I cannot stress how much your donations will help with this event. It will allow us to educate, inspire and put on a fantastic show, so please help us:

We are seeking sponsors from individuals and local businesses, if this is something you would be interested in, please contact: [email protected]

We look forward to bringing Torbay and the South West our first show. Watch this space for more news and information.
