The Exeter Aperture Project is an Exeter based project that uses photography as a means of engagement and empowerment and is managed by Meridian Raw CIC and part funded by Devon Community Foundation, which is Devon’s local charity for local people, supporting hundreds of voluntary and community groups on the frontline, helping local people in need and helping to build communities for everyone. As the leading route for philanthropic giving in Devon, DCF has distributed over £10,000,000 to more than 6,000 projects across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.

The main aims of the Exeter Aperture Project is to provide the opportunity for communities to come together in a creative project and develop their own photo-story, photographic theme and portfolio or images. In addition, participants will be encouraged to develop their photography skills through innovative activities and photographic tasks.

Throughout the course we would like you to have access to a digital camera, so please bring along your digital camera or digital phone so the facilitator is able to see what equipment you will be using in the project. If you do not have access to a digital camera then we maybe able to supply one, however, we only have a very limited number.
