Length of project
This project is part funded by the Tesco Bags of Help funding scheme
The Positive Focus Project is free 8-week participatory photography programme that enables participants to create their own photo-story or photographic theme and build a portfolio of images that reflect the positive aspects of their lives.
The Positive Focus Project is an Exeter based project that uses photography as a means of engagement and empowerment and is managed by Meridian Raw CIC and part funded by Tesco, via their Bag of Help funding scheme.
One of the main aims of the Positive Focus Project, is to provide the opportunity for communities to come together in a creative project.
It allows individuals to develop their own photography project and expand on their photography techniques. In addition, participants will be encouraged to look at the positive aspects of their lives and share them with others in the community.
Throughout the course we would like you to have access to a digital camera, so please bring along your digital camera or digital phone so the facilitator is able to see what equipment you will be using in the project.
If you do not have access to a digital camera, please let us know, then we may be able to supply one, however, we only have a very limited number.
These workshops will be taking place at The Palace Gate Centre, Exeter and will begin on Wednesday 2nd May 2018 . All workshops will run from 10am - 1pm.

Bags of Help is Tesco's exciting local community grant scheme. They use the money raised from plastic carrier bag sales to fund thousands of local projects in communities right across the UK. Projects that bring benefit to their community will get the green light – these range from improving community buildings and outdoor spaces to buying new equipment, training coaches or volunteers, and hosting community events.
Meridian Raw CIC is a social enterprise that uses photography as an empowerment tool for marginalised communities and socially excluded individuals. We help to bring about social change and advocacy through creative participatory photography workshops and participatory photography training.
