The UK Government's culture department, the DCMS, has announced an urgent inquiry into the future of the Science Museum Group, which includes the National Media Museum in Bradford, one of the key photography museums in the country. The DCMS is inviting submissions by 27 June 2013.
This follows comments from the group director, Ian Blatchford, who said that one of the group's museums, also including the Science Museum in London, The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester and the National Railway Museum in York, might have to be closed as a result of funding cuts.
Rob Sara, the master printer who instigated the Redeye Printing Bursary comments after the event: "Reflecting on the printing bursary, I am delighted that it created so much interest in the first instance, and practically speaking, how well it went as a collaboration between an emerging photographer who had not had the experience of having hand prints made.
We are very pleased to welcome Pod Collective - Anna White and Emily Hayes, with their researcher Jonathan Darling. Anna and Emily work with refugees and asylum seekers in Manchester using photography, storytelling and embroidery to produce mixed-media banners, while Jonathan researches the links between asylum seekers and cities.
