Open Call & Event – (School)House of Cards at The School of Miniclick

For one long weekend this June, from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th, Miniclick are taking over the Eranda Studio at The Photographers’ Gallery, turning the space into a secondary school of photography. The faculty at The School of Miniclick will present their curriculum – a series of talks, workshops, fun and games from a wide range of guest teachers, including David Fathi, Lumine’s Lab, Amak Mahmoodian, Rhiannon Adams, Kevin Meredith and many more.

You can read all about it here.

As part of the curriculum, our DT Department present a brand new installation based exhibition that we need your images for. It’s a chance to get your images exhibited in The Photographers’ Gallery and to be a part of Miniclick’s ongoing project, The Heart Grows Fonder.


We’re asking for submissions on the theme of ‘Your Education’. Inspired by Charles and Ray Eames’ ‘House of Cards’, we’ll then print a selection of the submissions on to individual giant sheets of corrugated card, each with slots cut into them to allow them to interlock. Visitors over the course of the weekend will be allowed to interlock the images to create a growing, evolving, three-dimensional structural exhibition.

All images will also be added to the The Heart Grows Fonder website. Scroll down for all the info on how to submit.

It would be great to see your work, and to see you over the weekend, to help us build a one-of-a-kind exhibition! On the Sunday, at 5pm, the individual sheets can be taken away by visitors.
