About this event

Walking with Cameras - Exeter University Grounds Photowalk

This photowalk will provide participants with a guided tour of the University's ground and the opportunity to photograph some of the wonderful plants, trees and views that are present on the Streatham Campus.

This Exeter University Grounds Photowalk will take place on Thursday 23rd September, 2021 at 10:00am The meeting point for this photowalk is Reed Hall.

Exeter University - tour of the Streatham Campus

Grab your cameras, mobile phones and tripod and come and take a photowalk through the grounds of the University of Exeter and gain an insight into one of the most attractive campuses of any British university.

The original planting on the Streatham Campus dates back to the 19th century, and whatever the time of year you choose to visit, there is always something different to explore and see.

Their experienced guide will lead us through the botanical gardens, past lakes and woodland, with the chance to take in many of the rare species of plants and trees.

This photowalk will provide many opportunities to take pictures of the gardens, plants and trees and learn about the history of the University grounds as we go along.

The Chasing the Light and Walking with Cameras Project

This photowalk is part of a larger project called Chasing the Light and Walking with Cameras. This 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.

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.
