The last months have went on in a quiet and gently manner, but the other week I received an e-mail from Andrés from the organization Proyecto DCR in Quito, where I did the photo project Kids’ Perspectives. He told me that the new photo workshop that was planned to begin during summer had to be postponed, since new pupils were about to arrive to the school. The new comers therefore needed to be acclimatised to their school activities before a new photo workshop could start.
Andrés attached some words from some of the participants from the March workshops. The words regarded the kids’ general thoughts of the project and also which of the photos they were most proud of:
It was awesome because it was the first time for me to handle a camera.
I liked the ones in the river because it was really exiting to take them.
I think it was a good project because it was fun.
I liked the one I took in the river with the plants because it is part of the nature.
I think it was very interesting and helpful because I learned to take pictures.
The one I liked the most is the one of the mountain because there I saw how beautiful my city is.
And then a short brief about Kids’ Perspectives activities in Sweden:
Once in a month I meet the people in Yennenga Art Team (YAT). It is a sweet and small group yet with five individuals, whose ideas are to get along in a very interesting artist exchange project. More information will come in time!
Except the team work of YAT, I now am reflecting around how I can realise my dreams concerning a development of my photo project with the prize money I have received. The financial support will first and foremost go to some kind of exhibition project. I have some ideas, and I have got really nice input on how I could work it out. My thought is to do a portable photo exhibition which could be easy to move from a place to another.
Do you have any ideas on how I can arrange a photo exhibition? Maybe you work at an office with an urgent need of having really beautiful art on the walls?
