Earlier this year I was involved with an exhibition showcasing the works of local people in Greenwich. This was the result of a series of urban photowalks by Eye4change, a charitable organisation working with local people of all backgrounds and abilities. Participants used a digital camera as a tool for exploration, storytelling and a means to connect, express and share a sense of belonging within their local community with a number of voluntary sector organisations taking part including; Greenwich Mind, Age UK, Listening Ears, Ajoda Community Alliance, CRI Aspire, the Indian Cultural Society and members of the Nepalese Gurkha Community. Participants chose their favourite photograph and this was displayed in the Stephen Lawrence Gallery at the University of Greenwich.
Eye4change have created an online gallery for the Landmarks project which you can access here. For more information about Eye4change visit their website below.
