At the heart of the festival, the Head On Hub at Sydney Lower Town Hall is the place to be for all things photography. Open daily from 12pm, we have something for every interest and experience level. Marvel at our 9 extraodinary exhibitions, hear from our exhibitors as they discuss their process or pick up a camera yourself and take part in one of our hands on workshops. From fashion to photojournalism to photoshop, there is always something to learn! PHotographers have come from half way across the globe exclusively for Head On, so don’t miss your oppurtunity to work alongside some of the best. 

Open until 10 May, see below for our extensive list of activities each day.
