Newtownbreda High School
Community Partner: Newtownbreda High School - facilitated by Mervyn Smyth - 27 November to 12 February 2013
This 10-week workshop programme was delivered to pupils from Newtownbreda High School. The pupils used digital photography to explore the themes of pride, love, nature, friendship and identity. The project was delivered by Belfast Exposed community artist Mervyn Smyth.
During the programme the pupils explored the elements needed to curate a successful exhibition. The group then created an exhibition of the images that they had taken. The exhibition was launched in February 2013 and is on permanent display in the school.
This project was the first stage in the development of our relationship with Newtownbreda High School. Our joint aim is to work in partnership to develop photography skills of pupils within the school.
