PROJECT DATES: 2017 / 2018
COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT – IT TAKES COURAGE
AIM OF THE PROJECT: This project was initiated by Women’s Health Grampians, with the aim of upskilling multicultural women in the Ballarat area through a creative project. Our involvement includes running photography workshops, teaching light, composition, camera settings, food photography and post production. The final result of the project was a book of recipes from the women involved, along with a corresponding website and social media channels to market the book.
The group consisted of about 20 women from 15 different countries around the world, all now residents of Ballarat.
The book sold out it’s first published run and is now in it’s second edition. The group became so connected, they established “A Pot of Courage” – an incorporated organisation that supports multicultural women in Ballarat, running their own catering business and more.
