… well, not quite but we have been awarded a grant of £29,133 by People’s Health Trust’s* Health Bloom funding programme.
This is fantastic news for Why Don’t We.
The grant will enable us to establish our own independent group and will pay for a group leader/tutor, room hire, equipment and event and exhibition expenses. The working title of this project is People in Focus.
We are still working out the details but so far, we can say that we are likely to run at Cottingley Cornerstone Centre from September 2015 to March 2017. We intend to work on a range of photographic projects which will result in learning resources which can be downloaded from our website.
Places are available on this project. We are also looking for volunteers for this and other projects. No special skills are required – please contact us for more information.
More news will appear here as it becomes available.
