Day in the Life - children use photography to document a day in their township

On Saturday 2nd October we will launch our ‘Day in the Life’ photography exhibition at Hebden Bridge Town Hall.

The exhibition is a chance to give children the space to express themselves and tell their stories through the medium of photography, by documenting a typical day living in some of South Africa’s poorest townships. This builds upon a creative arts-based approach to youth leadership the Trust has developed in collaboration with the University of Leeds.

The Trust is being supported by several expert photographers on the project, including well known Hebden Bridge based photographer Sarah Mason, our wonderful Patrons Jonathan and Angela Scott, from the BBC’s Big Cat Diary series and renowned commercial photographer Matthew G Lloyd.

We think that this will be an exciting way for people to engage with our work and explore the continued story of change in South Africa through the voices of children who live there, as well as finding out how they can support us!

The Day in the Life exhibition launch will be held in Waterfront Hall at Hebden Bridge Town Hall from 5.30-7pm on Saturday 2nd October 2021. There is an open invitation to the launch but if you are interested in attending please register as soon as possible as there are limited spaces available.

The exhibition will stay up until the 8th October 2021, before commencing a touring exhibition in various locations around the Calder Valley and beyond.
