Streets Ahead, Lisburn
Community Partner: Streets Ahead - facilitated by Mervyn Smyth - 3 September to 29 October 2012
This Project was undertaken by young people from Old Warren/Hilden/ Low Road, Maze area of Lisburn seeking to build relationships and community capacity, using the rich visual history of the area. The project was delivered in partnership with Streets Ahead and was facilitated by Belfast Exposed community artist Mervyn Smyth.
The project used photography to enable all people in the area to work together. Focusing on both positive community aspects and addressing issues the project aimed to move the community forward. During the project an open dialogue was created between the young and older members of the community, contributing to good community relations, community safety and pride.
Participants built a very unique piece of visual art that informs through imagery and offers a sustained platform of engagement.
