Artists Taking Part: Community Project
Artists Taking Part: Photography Project
Commissioned by London Borough of Waltham Forest (LBWF)
During the summer of 2012 I will be documenting 10 of the major cultural and Olympic related events happening in Waltham Forest. This collection of celebratory and documentary photographs will be used to create a ‘Visual Time Capsule’.
I have also recruited a team of 20 volunteers to learn about digital photography and to contribute their own images to the Visual Time Capsule. They will be attending 3 weekend workshops prior to the shoots, during May and June. Two volunteers will then attend each shoot, where they will be supervised and encouraged to create images from their own perspective. At the end of the project there will be a final wrap-up workshop and an exhibition, which will be held in Waltham Forest.
The volunteer participants are from all sections of the community, with the goal being to include people who might not normally have the opportunity to experience this type of project.
