Black History Month Photo Project

The Pilion Trust By The Pilion Trust

We want to display an photography exhibition celebrating Black Pride and the stories of local BAME people.

Islington Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We plan to take photos of local residents, who are part of the BAME community, to highlight the richness of their individual cultures and lives. We will work with local professional photographers to take candid and sensitive portrait photos of Islington residents based in the Holloway area. Also, each image will have a short story or description about the subject of the portrait. We will then display them in our hall at the Ringcross Community Centre

What we'll deliver:

  • A series of portrait photographers that celebrate local black heroes
  • An exhibition space that promotes discussion and connection
  • Proffessional Photographers creating striking portraits

Why it's a great idea:

The main aim and benefit of this project is to increase awareness of the stories and lives of local BAME individuals who have a story. Hopefully, seeing themselves being celebrated will create a great sense of pride and representation. The hall of our community centre will become an exhibition space for the month of October, allowing it to become a hub for conversation. We will create a book that people can take home that features all the work in the exhibition. Furthermore, sales and foot traffic will both boost funding and awareness of the support work done at The Pilion Trust.

Steps to get it done:

  • Sourcing subjects for our photos
