Community collaborative social photography
Our new community collaborative enterprise adventure has kicked off this week with a unique street photography experiment.
30 disposable cameras will be given to our men and woman on the streets, they will have 7 days to photograph the city from their perspective, it could be architecture, parks, people, a week in their life, anything. We will then develop and display their works at Bespoke Boutiques #bb community enterprise hub on little Queen Street, giving credited art works in a gallery space for people who would never normally get the opportunity, at no cost and no catch. Further to this, the works will then be part of another exciting gallery in the new year amongst well known local artists and photographers.
Following on from this we are also be planning collaborative work with Hull artist Vicky O’Grady, photographer Tim Everett Photographer and local artists and designers to create something special and offer opportunities for inclusion and enjoyment of the arts in our city.
Something to look forward to, to work towards, to be proud of and give lasting positive memories and opportunities to everyone in Hull with the support of real local community focused people. Community enterprise gets things done, it shows what can be done with people power, little or no finance, and it includes everyone, it shouts out loud and proud what community can do! Once the pictures are in, the panel will go through them for selection, safeguarding and we will put together the gallery pieces ready for exhibition.
The day of the exhibition will include the artists themselves of course, music, media, entertainment and hopefully lots and lots of people excited to view the artwork.
