MC Alasdair Foster leads a talented, passionate panel through the challenges, changes ahead, both here in Auckland and internationally.

Photography education today is experiencing a period of rapid change, adapting to encompass new technologies, while the ubiquity of cellphone cameras is believed by some to have democratised image-making. What is the future of photographic education in the academy? Are we in a post-medium era?

Leading educators internationally will take part in this debate and will be exploring the questions posed by MC Alasdair Foster, whose doctoral research explored the democratisation of the arts and the failure of arts education.

With Adam Custins - Kingsize Studios, James Dooley - Alexia Foundation, Assoc Professor Simone Douglas - Parsons The New School, Assoc Professor Gavin Hipkins - University of Auckland, Aquin Mathews - Indian Photo Festival, Gael Newton - Senior Curator, Assoc Professor Oh Soonhwa - Nanyang Technological University.
