The project got off to a great start at yesterday's introductory workshop with the New Focus group at Impressions Gallery. Thanks to the organiser, Gallery Assistant, Jen Sobol, the event was really well publicised and the turnout was fantastic. 14 young people came along to hear more about the Changing Bradford project. One even travelled all the way from Blackpool to make sure they didn't miss out! It was really rewarding to see so many people interested in getting involved in exploring and documenting South Asian heritage in Bradford.
The New Focus group is Impressions Gallery's youth advisory panel and they have skills in photography, film and events management which will be a great asset to the project.They quickly demonstrated their confidence and skills with a portrait photo session!
