Arena Seminars

Over the years, the annual Arena Seminar has built a reputation as being an excellent seminar on photographic art and practice. Held annually in March it is attended by a mix of keen regular supporters and newcomers to the Arena experience.  Many well-known names in photography are invited to speak and share their photography. Attendees have an opportunity to take part in the popular Print Walk, where attendees can show their work in an informal and supportive setting, and the Arena Raffle is always an exciting conclusion to the weekend.
