Bringing Gower Home 1 provided a series of one day photography workshops for groups of up to 12 participants on the Gower. The day workshop was followed up with a projected display of the participants’ favourite photographs at a venue convenient to the participating organisation. Here, each participant was encouraged to share their feelings about the experience and discuss their photographs with friends and family. The whole project experience focused upon developing participants’ life skills, particularly self-esteem.
The workshops encouraged a connection with the landscape and celebrate what is personally special about the Gower. We focus on themes of Natural Gower, The Sea and Gower, Living on Gower, and Historical Gower. This project was delivered in collaboration with Gower Landscape Partnership (GLP) which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Natural Resources Wales, City and County of Swansea, and National Trust.
This first round of 10 workshops took place in 2015-2016. A promotional video of everybody’s experiences can be seen by following this link. Meanwhile, blog entries of all the groups’ experiences can be found below.
