Arts Care Gofal Celf Does Photography for Wellbeing

Our Creative Communities project, funded by Hywel Dda Health Board and Carmarthenshire County Council, is providing people who have experienced mental health problems with the opportunity to take part in a 4-week online photography project led by Arts Care Gofal Celf’s artist Sheree Murphy.

The weekly workshops will take place on Thursday afternoons, online via Zoom, as follows:

1) Composition and capturing a photograph
2) Studying photographers through history: photographers who have found their voice/identity, campaigners through photography; this is to highlight the creative engagement that photography can give to an individual for positive change and to give a voice/positive communication
3) Set a mini brief: e.g. for patterns in nature, the mini brief would be about connecting to nature or identity, etc.
4) Photographic walk: this would encourage mindfulness and connecting to our environment.

The course also hopes to include an optional face-to-face workshop so that you can get to work with Sheree in person, sharing a photo walk out in nature towards the end of the project.
