Change the Picture 2 Photography Exhibition Launch
Fri 24 March 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 GMT
You are invited to join us at the Richard Morris Lounge in the Derby Cathedral Cafe for the launch of this special photography exhibition.
Change the Picture 2 is a project delivered by Derventio Housing Trust in partnership with QUAD and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Its aim is to give people with experience of homelessness a much-needed skills and confidence boost and a chance to explore their personal experiences through photography.
Jon Legge, a photographer and photography educator based in Nottingham, spent three months working with the groups. The series of images represents a Portrait of Lives presented through Possessions, Portraits and Sanctuary (sense of place). They show the photographers' interests, skills, friendships, social networks, challenges and personal space.
We hope that displaying these photographs in a public exhibition will help to challenge stereotypes and raise awareness of homelessness in the local area.
Free drinks and cake will be available.
The event is free to attend but please RSVP so we have an idea of numbers for the refreshments.
