do you have a WORKING point-and-shoot film camera that's gathering dust since you've gone digital?
this is an appeal to donate it to a worthy cause.. read on!
starting next month is an exciting photographic venture entitled INSIDE OUT, partly inspired by the film born into brothels, to connect with migrant workers in singapore by teaching them photography.
the project seeks to create a socially-engaged work about the substantial population of migrant workers in Singapore – by helping them document their own lives through photography. the workers will learn the basics of photography over a series of workshops and, with the cameras given to them, record their reality as they see it. their photographs will then be edited and exhibited at next year's m1 fringe festival.
this project draws its inspiration from successful photovoice projects (www.photovoice.org) that empower marginalised groups of people to document their own lives and in so doing, claim a stake in public space.
at least 30 cameras (FULLY FUNCTIONAL OF COZ!) are needed for this project.
we're hoping for a generous response, please help if u can!! n pls spread the word.
kindly leave your name for now (i need to gauge response), i'll soon be posting details of donation centre(s).
