The Hub Academy hosted the ‘Look Again’ Mindful photography course this spring. This 6 week course was put on to help people to build confidence and self-esteem and improve their mental health. Using photography and the community aspect of doing a course, we had a number of students mark positive outcomes from taking part.
This all ended with an exhibition of their work at Stroud’s Big Festival of Nature which took place in Strafford Park last weekend. (Sunday 7th July) We hope to be exhibiting them in the Academy soon, so please look out for them!
This course was kept deliberately simple – with students encouraged to use different platforms which suit them best. They could use their phone if that suited them better. The emphasis was on creativity and capturing images which meant something to them. All this while exploring the area – which comes to life in the spring time!
We hope to be putting on this course again, so if you are interested in this or any further, similar courses, please contact us on:
