We are launching a new Ageing Creatively photography project and are looking for local people over the age of 55 to take part.
15 participants, 28 days, 28 photographs.....
About the project
Our new photography project, My Perspective will begin with a short workshop in photography led by a local professional photographer. The workshop will be friendly and accessible no matter what your previous experience in photography might be.
Participants will then be supported to take one photograph each day for one month that represents their day in some way; perhaps somewhere they have been, a person they have seen or something they have enjoyed.
Each week the Corn Exchange will host a coffee morning for the participants to enable the group to exchange ideas, share their work, talk about things they have noticed and support each other.
The project will last for one month and finish with a public exhibition of the participants work. Every participant is welcome to remain anonymous if they wish to.
We are looking for people ages 55 plus who are living in a wide range of different circumstances; people living independently and working, people who are enjoying a busy retirement and people who are living in care homes or visiting day centres.
This is a really exciting opportunity to challenge any preconceptions society might have about ageing, to explore photography in an informal environment and to have your photography work displayed in a public exhibition.
What you will need
You don't need a professional camera or any experience to be involved - participants can take pictures on their phone, smart device or any grade of digital camera they happen to have. Those without access to a camera can still take part and are encouraged to contact us to discuss possible options.
If you would like to be involved or have any questions about the project please email our Ageing Creatively Coordinator, Harriet Wyatt on email@example.com call 01635 582666.
