Christina Webber lives and works in Scotland, where she completed a First Class BA (Hons) in Photography & Film from Edinburgh Napier University in 2015. Christina loves pictures, words, and their potential when put together; using photography as a reflective process to re-position perspective and explore shared experience.
Christina is Co-Director of AGITATE, a hub for photography based in Edinburgh's West End. AGITATE aims to change the landscape of photography in Scotland, making it easier for lens-based artists to show and sell images, and the industry more reflective of the breadth of people making work.
Previously, Christina was Co-Founder of Fresh Focus, a peer-led critique group providing dedicated space for project discussion/ development. Fresh Focus has held three group exhibitions to date, produced one group publication WORKBOOK and traded at a variety of zine and book fairs. In 2020 and in the midst of the Covid-19 lockdown, Christina launched Finding Focus, a video and podcast series seeking to 'demystify' the creative industries and intended as an informal resource for those finding their feet in the arts.
Alongisde her role at AGITATE, Christina is currently working in a freelance capacity as Online Coordinator and Social Media Officer for a variety of clients, plus tutoring as part of the Stills School. To get in touch email firstname.lastname@example.org.
