From February to April this year, we held workshops with The Haven Project part of Alder Hey Hospital NHS Trust, where we had digital media and photograph workshops with parents from St Silas C of E School in Toxteth and New Park Primary School in Tuebrook, Liverpool.
In this project thirteen parents, two SOLA ARTS facilitators, one facilitator from Haven Project and two facilitators from the Liverpool PCT Community Development Workers Team were involved.
Participants were supported to explore their environment and develop new photography and digital media skills by developing an artistic view on their everyday life. Another task was to write texts to describe their own photographs.
The result of this work has been a text based photographic book, which was presented at the end of the project within a celebration held on the 21st and 22nd of June. Well done everyone!
