A guest blog by Anthony Firmin, WEA course tutor
Workers’ Education Association (WEA) in association with the People’s History Museum are presenting a seven week photography course to run alongside the current exhibition: Election! Britain Votes
So, with the excitement of Election 2015 over, the ballot papers counted and a new government appointed it is time to reflect and look at photography, voting and the issues that surround elections.
The course will cover technical and creative aspects of photography and there will be an emphasis on documenting the home, our lives and social issues. Additionally we will be having a tour of the exhibits as well as visiting the museum’s Labour History Archive & Study Centre.
One of the outcomes from the course will be to put together a book of students’ photographs taken during the course.
This looks to be a really interesting and varied course and both the People’s History Museum and WEA look forward to you coming along and taking part.
WEA course Votegraphy: digital photography runs from Friday 5 June 2015 – Friday 17 July, 9.00am -12.00pm
*Please note this is a seven week course; attendees are required to book onto all seven weeks of the course*
Suitable for adults aged 19 and over, all levels and abilities welcome.
