Mobile Flower Photography
Clydebank Art Gallery and Museum. In partnership with 'Tate Artist Rooms - Robert Mapplethorpe' Exhibition
Prior to iPhoneography and Mobile Art being the focus of my workshops I co-delivered a number of training sessions and art based projects for Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow. These were delivered in partnership with Glasgow based photographer, educator and community artist Iseult Timmermans. Artworks With Young People involved working with Primary and Secondary schoolchildren on photography based art and multimedia that resulted in a CD-Rom and large scale vinyl 'Banners for A New Millennium' that were displayed in outdoor public spaces around Glasgow.
Again working in partnership with Iseult we produced SOBS (sick of being sick) a magazine designed with children who were long term patients at Yorkhill Children’s Hospital in Glasgow. This was a series of workshops that introduced them to graphic design, desktop publishing and photography.
This partnership extended to Barriers a collaboration with adults with physical disabilities on an interactive CD-Rom that combined photography, video, games and storytelling to tackle and debate the notion of barriers on the day to day lives of disabled adults.
