No ex­pe­ri­ence is needed, peo­ple are asked just to bring their phones.

The work­shop is be­ing held as part of the Scot­tish Men­tal Health Arts and Film Fes­ti­val and work­shop par­tic­i­pants will be in­vited to take part in the film-mak­ing ses­sions which will be fea­tured in the fes­ti­val events in Oc­to­ber.
