Focal Point: Capturing Community and Heritage

For this exciting new project, English Heritage and Photoworks are seeking proposals from young photographers keen to develop their practice with support from the Photoworks team and an experienced mentor.

Three artists will each be commissioned to make a new body of artwork at a Free to Enter English Heritage site.

In Autumn 2023, we’re partnering with Photoworks to deliver an exciting project that will focus on some of the inspiring free to enter sites that we take care of across the country.

From ruined castles that act as the backdrop to family picnics, to the daily dog walk and community events, our free sites form part of the local heritage that help make our towns, villages and cities special places to live. We’re commissioning emerging young photographers to capture some of these stories and bring out new perspectives on the role heritage can play in our everyday lives.
