Balloch Library – “Your Library, Your Community”
by Michael McLaren · 26th April 2018
Over the months of February and March 2018 Inclusive Images facilitated a Community Voice photo project entitled “Your Library, Your Community” in which locals from all over The Vale participated.
“I’ve really enjoyed the workshops, and enjoyed meeting other people from the local community.”
“Really enjoyed the workshops it opened my eyes up about the wider community, I feel really confident to talk to folk now, I was petrified to do so before.”
“It is quite extraordinary to see how the course participants have grown in confidence. Many were full of doubts and anxieties about their own abilities when they began and it is very inspiring to see how they have grown in both their personal confidence and in their own creative abilities. They are a very talented bunch and it is deeply heartening to know that they will continue to pursue photography and explore their own creativity.”
Allan Gordon (Service Improvement Librarian)
