Come and enjoy a community photo exhibition in Balloch Library on Saturday April 21.
The event is the finale of an eight-week Community Voice project which was run by local social enterprise Inclusive Images in partnership with Cube Housing and West Dunbartonshire Libraries.
The workshops brought together people from across the Vale who were passionate about the area and keen to highlight what was on offer in the local libraries and communities and the improvements they would like to see made.
Charlie Sherry, founder of Inclusive Images, said: “The workshops are a great way to bring people together who might not otherwise meet”.
“We discuss issues that are affecting their communities and then they capture this using the photography skills they learn with us”.
“The images which they have taken are very powerful and show what a great resource the local library offers to the community. Plus they provide some good ideas of how they can be further developed so more people want to use them.”
The workshops were funded by the Wheatley Group, who recently paid for the refurbishment of Balloch Library and the installation of new computers and IT suite.
Workshop participant Christina Logan said: “I really enjoyed the course. I learned how to use my camera and how to take better pictures. It was great to meet other local people for a chat and I made friends”.
“It was much more than just about photography; it was getting to know your community. Charlie and Michael were eager to pass on their knowledge and answer all our questions”.
The exhibition will be open to the public on Saturday April 21 between 12 – 3pm all welcome. Tea, coffee and light refreshments available free of charge.
