Below 2020 media are pleased to announce the award of £9,379.00 from the National Lottery Community Fund. These funds were awarded in February for supporting the visually impaired photography club, organising workshops and documentaries showing what the visually impaired community are capable of.
We plan to exhibit our work at the end of The National Lottery grant around February 2023. This will give the club a chance to get used to their cameras and get out and about are take some good photos.
We will be teaming up with Southsea-based business Strong Island to conduct our photography workshops around the local area. The team will teach those who are not so familiar with camera equipment, and by doing this we hope they will gain more freedom too get get outside and enjoy their own surroundings.
We have also teamed up with Billy Stevenson from ‘Film Crew 4U CIC’. Film Crew are a group of up and coming film makers who support people struggling in life by introducing them to the many aspects of film making. These skills can help them pursue film making as a career or hobby, with stories and messages giving hope to those who are in the same situations.
Part of the funding will go towards the purchase of camera equipment and transportation, photography exhibition as well as general running costs for the charity.
Below 2020 media would like to thank the National Lottery Community Fund for their support in our new project.
