Shed Some Light On It: a participatory photography project with Rebecca Rowan

This event will run every Saturday through January, via zoom -9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th.

Welcome to Shed Some Light On It; a participatory photography project for adults in the local area. The project is open to anyone over the age of 18 whether you are an experienced photographer or not.

Rebecca is an experienced tutor and facilitator and will help you explore the positive effect photography can have on our well-being.

Why does it work?

When we are mindful, we are more aware of our thoughts and surroundings. Photography can support us in slowing down and noticing things. Being in nature is proven to be beneficial to our health. This project combines photography, nature and awareness.

When?

In January, Rebecca is offering the opportunity to work together on a participatory photography project uniting the local community throughout the notoriously dark days in January.

Would you like to be involved?

You can be one of twenty participants within the area to receive a simple photographic task. Each week a new task will be revealed. You can take as many photographs as you like on your chosen device and then select your favourite and upload it to a safe, private online sharing platform. Rebecca will provide instructions on how to do this. There is also an option to meet with Rebecca and the rest of the group over zoom every Saturday at 10am.
