Stirchley Community Centre Photography Project
The existing Stirchley Community Centre is due to close in mid-march, to be replaced by the much-heralded Stirchley Baths development in early 2015. The varied bunch of around 30 groups that use the centre will, in the interim, be relocated to temporary homes around the area.
In something of a mad dash before the centre is lost to the developers, the idea of a photography project has come to our minds. We’d like to open the opportunity up to photographers of all abilities to come and take photos of the centre and the groups that use it. There’s huge potential here for photographers to hone their skills documenting the activities of a really diverse range of groups, and to give those groups a reminder of the time they spent using the centre.
If you would like to get involved, but don’t have the equipment, the new Baths project has a load of kit that is available for documenting the redevelopment of the community centre. They’re running a Social Media Surgery on Tuesday 4th February where you can come and talk to them about the varied ways of getting involved in the Baths project, but also how to become more involved, digitally, in the community as a whole. Places must be booked in advance though.
Please email email@example.com, to express an interest in taking some photos, or perhaps come along and say hello at the Social Media Surgery. Please do get in touch before going to the community centre to take photos though: we need to let the staff there know who will be coming, and when.
