Exeter Cathedral

Exeter Cathedral is one of the oldest and most beautiful Cathedrals in England. Located in the centre of the city, there has been a Cathedral on the present site for nearly one thousand years.

The building itself is a remarkable feat of engineering, design and craftsmanship. It has the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting in the world, stunning stained glass windows and an intricately carved image screen on the West Front.

The Cathedral is one of Exeter’s top attractions and boasts over 900 years of history. Restoration and conservation work is ongoing, whilst the ancient Library and Archives is still responsible for the care of some of our greatest treasures.

For this photowalk we are providing 10 FREE tickets and 15 Tickets at cost price of £16.00 + admin fee

The Chasing the Light and Walking with Cameras Project

Chasing the Light and Walking with Cameras is a 3-year project in Exeter that will provide 6, 14-week participatory photography programmes and 64 photo-walks trips. In addition, there will be 2 participant curated exhibitions and each participant who takes part in participatory photography programmes will curate their own personal photo-book. This project has been funded by The National Lottery Community Fund's Reaching Communities Programme and it will enable participants to create their own photo-story, build a portfolio of images and take part in a fun and creative activity.

Walking with Cameras

The Walking with Cameras programme will provide an alternative means of social interaction and creative community engagement. Participants will be given the opportunity to visit a location for 2, 3 or 4 hours and create their own images or take part in a photographic task. The locations will be varied and will include local urban areas, country houses, farms, nature reserves, the coastline and the countryside.

There will be 64 photography trips in total and we aim to have two per month. Each participant will have the opportunity of publishing their best images via Meridian Raw CIC’s Flickr Galleries (internet-based photography albums). This will enable all the participants taking part in the photo-walks to see and comment on other participants images and help create an ongoing dialogue.

Chasing the Light

Chasing the Light will continue our participatory photography work and will provide a platform for working with other agencies, organisations and participants. Each programme will aim to engage with 20 - 30 participants & each weekly workshop will last for 3 hours, providing each participant with 42 hours of interaction, learning, stimulus, discussion, creativity and empowerment. Each programme will have its own theme and also includes 3 community/photo-walks, this content is participant led and will be decided by the participant planning team at the planning stage of the project.

Those taking part in participatory photography programmes will engage in inspiring photo-dialogue exercises, which are devised to bring about discussion, teamwork, individual viewpoints and the space and time to develop their own photographic projects. In addition, they will learn & develop basic camera skills, build a portfolio of images, go on photography trips & community tours, work in a safe environment within small groups and be part of a creative activity.

Each participant will also have the opportunity of creating and curating their own personalised photography book, that will contain up to 50 images that they have produced over the 14-weeks. These photo-books will act as physical Positive Memory item that can be shared with family and friends and can be used to bring about conversations about how the participant is feeling and what they have achieved.
