We are excited to announce that from 15 - 21 March, Kuldīga will host the first session of the new ISSP International Masterclass. As part of the event, we invite you to attend an open evening programme of lectures and presentations, as well as a pop-up exhibition of the first results on March 21 at Kuldīga Arts House.
The ISSP International Masterclass is a year-long international mentorship and networking programme for emerging photographers. The programme offers 24 selected participants to develop their personal projects under supervision by some of the greatest tutors we have worked with, as well as invited industry experts. The participants take part in three workshop sessions - two in Latvia and one in Sicily, with regular online feedback in between. The programme is meant for both self-taught photographers and recent graduates from academic programmes, who wish to pursue an extended personal project and take their work to the next level.
