The International Summer School of Photography (ISSP) is searching for emerging artists to join a week of networking, workshops and creativity in the heart of rural Latvia.

Now in its 13th year, the 2019 edition will focus on “Photography and the World”. Photographers will work alongside activists, writers, scientists and anthropologists in six workshops, looking at photography as a tool for change.

“From climate change to the crisis of liberal democracy, the huge shifts we are currently undergoing combine to create a sense of urgency and desire for action,” organisers say. “Together, the participants will look beyond the sometimes insular bubble of the photography and art world.”

The programme will also include a pop-up exhibition, talks, and portfolio reviews, as well as a manifesto and publication.

Some 72 spaces are up for grabs at the event, which runs from 12 – 20 July 2019. Participants from across the globe will be chosen based on their portfolios, which should reflect this year’s theme.

Applications are open until 10 April 2019. For more information, click here.
