Beyond the Line – Salisbury Hospital

Week three of the project, and for the first time we were able to go outside to take photographs.  It's a fascinating site – a mix of new build and the old single story brick air base buildings.  We found some good spots in the alleys connecting the two – bright primary NHS house colours alongside cast iron pipes and old brick just glowing in the soft light of an overcast Wiltshire…

Have just written to Manfrotto to see if they will lend the project some tripods and pistol grip ball and socket heads to make our photographers less dependent on me setting up the shots….

Relays – Art of Sport workshops

Just completed the last of these workshops on Friday.  2000 school kids, 300 RELAYS student volunteers, about 20 artists, three film crews (one on a cherry picker), a mayor, a choir, two Olympic athletes and a couple of very forbearing Olympic mascots – just as well it was chilly or they would have been walking around in personal saunas, given the amount of padding in the suits.

Great fun just to see the excitement this whole olympic thing generates, and hats off to Virgina Bailey of RELAYs who organised the show.  We (thanks again to my three student helpers) ran workshops getting the various school groups out photographing the sport, the art, the grass, each other, and mocking up newspaper front pages with the images…

right – what's next…?

Photography and ESOL project – update

Things are moving!  We have a chance to run this project but time is tight – the funds have to be spent by end of December 2011.

There are two introductory workshops to get the project rolling:  13.30pm at Bournemouth Learning Centre on Tuesday 11th October, and 10.00am at Oakdale Centre on Wednesday 12th October – details on poster image below, or email me, or ring Skills&Learning Bournemouth and Poole on 01202 262305.

These two workshops will set out what the project intends to achieve, as well as recruit photographers to take part.  So – if you (or someone you know) are from Eastern Europe, want to take part in a photography project, and speak English as a second language – come along!

There may also be opportunities for the group to travel to London later in the year.
