Annadale Flats – Diversity
Community Partner: Annadale and Haywood Residents Association - facilitated by Tanya Kirk - 20 March to 8 April 2013
This 8-week project used digital photography to enable a group of young people aged 13-17 years old to explore identity and cultural diversity in the Annadale Flats area. The project was delivered in partnership with the Annadale and Haywood Residents Association and was facilitated by Belfast Exposed community artist Tanya Kirk who worked alongside community worker Jeanette McMillan. Belfast Exposed community artists, Louise Smyth and Andy McDonagh, also supported this project.
Over the 8 weeks participants developed their digital photography skills alongside exploring, discussing and reflecting the cultural diversity within the Annadale Flats area. At the end of the project participants selected an edit of the images they had created. These images will form part of an exhibition that explores Annadale, the community, cultural diversity, living together and hate crime. This exhibition will be presented later in the year.
This project was the first stage in the development of our relationship with the Annadale and Haywood Residents Association. Our joint aim is to work in partnership to develop photography infrastructure within the area.
