This month we are celebrating the launch of www.seewithfresheyes.co.uk online Mindful Photography exhibition featuring the work of some Nelson Trust clients plus participants from Headway Gloucestershire, Maggies Cheltenham and Longfield community hospice.
The project supported 40 people in their mid-life from around Gloucestershire who have experienced challenges to their mental health or wellbeing. Our clients at the Nelson Trust benefitted from Ruth Davey’s approach of blending photography and mindfulness to slow down, reduce stress, relieve anxiety and boost mood. The Hub Academy is situated close to the Canal whilst also having the industrial estate on our doorstep and these contrasting environments can be seen as the inspiration in the stunning photographs on the website.
Our thanks go to Look Again, the BUPA Foundation, Create Gloucestershire, Gloucester Cathedral, the University of Gloucestershire and Llanthony Secunda Priory for supporting this project.
