Photography Exhibition Opens Tuesday 11th September 2012

Leixlip Youth and Community Centre are pleased to announce the opening of a photography exhibition in the Community Centre on Tuesday 11th September. The exhibition will be hanging in Centre throughout the months of September and October and features original photographs from participants of our recent “Inter-generational Photography Project”.

The project, which ran over eight weeks during the summer, brought together Young People (13-18yrs), and Older People within our community to learn digital photography skills.  The outcome is an exhibition of the photographs, which are being displayed to the public at the Centre.  This hands-on project facilitated younger people and older people working and interacting together on a common interest, and feedback from the group has been hugely positive.

Local photographer David Thomas Smith was the course tutor and worked on the project in a voluntary capacity

Many thanks to Kildare County Council, who funded this project through the Community Grant Scheme.
