We are a not-for-profit social enterprise, that uses photography as an empowerment tool for marginalised communities and socially excluded individuals.

Vision & Mission

To provide a voice for people who are socially excluded and for underprivileged communities, to  aid individuals to share their stories to a wider audience. We use developing empowerment platforms to creative participatory photography techniques.

Methodology

We custom-build projects and workshops to suit the needs of the participants, offering individual support  to develop their  project using photo-essays, camera skills, editing, captioning images and final presentation.

What we do

Through our guided photography workshops, participants use digital cameras to capture images that highlight personal issues, provide an insight into their community or a chosen topic  and communicate feelings through imagery.

Projects

We use participatory photography because it has been used many times to help marginalised communities and the socially excluded by allowing them to create their own photographic projects and portray their own view and stories.
