This project was funded on 25 Jan 2019!

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.

What we'll deliver:

  • Street photography
  • An exhibition
  • A short film

Why it's a great idea:

This project will get young people to look at where they live in a completely different way, making them feel more in touch with their local surroundings, and realising that Rochester has so much to offer them as members of the community. It will also show others how passionate, engaged, and positive young people can be!

Steps to get it done:

  • Begin workshops with young people - April 2019
  • Hold a photography exhibiiton open event - June 2019
  • Hold a film screening of the project - June 2019
