The Access Project is a day centre for people with physical disabilities and sensory loss, offering access to support and a wide range of social and creative opportunities, including a photography club. Groundwork London has been working with the club for the last three months to support them in curating their first public exhibition.
The Exhibition, entitled ‘Looking out for Summer ‘explores the photographer’s thoughts and feelings about summer and will bring a welcome splash of summer colour to Whitton High Street, Richmond. The photographers exhibiting their work are; Patty Lloyd, Stephen Cox, Clare Watson, Gordon Lamont and Nirmal Kainth, all of whom are members of the Access Project’s photography club. Local people can see photographs displayed at Pop Up Whitton, 15 Whitton High Street from June 27 to July 6, from 9am to 5pm every day.
“We’re thrilled to have been able to work with the Access Project photography club to help make this exhibition happen and to be able to celebrate the achievements of these talented photographers right in the heart of the local community.” Daniel Brittle, Community Project Assistant at Groundwork London”.
The exhibition has been developed through Richmond Community Action (RCA). RCA is a project being delivered by Groundwork London and funded by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. RCA offers opportunities and support for local residents to become involved and take action on issues that matter to them.
