Our Journey

Rochester Street Photography project started fundraising!1 week ago
Medway LGBTQ+ Pride Event Summer 2019
Medway LGBTQ+ Pride Event Summer 2019 joined Crowdfund Rochester3 weeks ago

The Medway Pride team is co-directed by Martha Abernathy and Natasha Steer. Natasha Steer is a Chatham based creative practitioner who has been working in community engagement and events in Medway for over 7 years. Martha Abernathy is an American expat living and working in Medway: she is a radiographer, a trade unionist, and an LGBT rights campaigner. We would like to hold a Medway Pride event in Summer 2019 and we envision the event to include the following. - A parade through Rochester that raises awareness of the need for acceptance of equality and diversity. - A daytime event in an accessible public space that includes performances on a stage, stalls providing information and vendors with LGBTQ+ merchandise. - Collaboration with community organisers to create a framework that can be built on in order to widen local LGBTQ+ communities and awareness. In turn, this would mean Medway Pride events can occur annually and throughout the year.

Rochester Street Photography project
Rochester Street Photography project joined Crowdfund Rochester1 month ago

Street Photography Rochester will work alongside pupils from Delce Academy and Chatham Grammar School for Girls to change perceptions of Rochester. This will be done by interactive photo walks which will build in technique and create a foundation of photography skills. We believe that photography has the potential to improve mental health, raise aspirations, increase confidence and provide transferable skills to the wider world, as well as help people to love where they live and feel more positive about their community.  After the pupils have completed the course, an exhibition of the photographs will be organised in conjunction with Little Roc Cafe and Gallery . This exhibition will also be open to the public to view. There are also plans to show a short documentary film of the project, through collaboration with Rochester Film Society.
