More suc­cess­ful than pic­tured

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

A STRONG in­ter­est in learn­ing about pho­tog­ra­phy has led to a new pro­gram at Fre­man­tle PCYC that proved so suc­cess­ful more chil­dren wanted to take part.

Fre­man­tle PCYC youth worker Nikki Wormald said the pro­gram came about when a num­ber of the Fri­day night girls’ pro­gram mem­bers showed a strong in­ter­est and pas­sion for pho­tog­ra­phy.

The en­su­ing six-week pro­gram came about thanks to a $2000 Abo­rig­i­nal Ben­e­fits Foun­da­tion grant and the help of Cam­era Story team Sarah Landro and Jacqueline War­rick.

Ms Wormald said the pro­gram was so suc­cess­ful some younger mem­bers of the cen­tre wanted to give it a go.

“We teamed up with Cam­era Story who have worked with about 10 young peo­ple look­ing at tak­ing dif­fer­ent pho­tos and cre­at­ing a story through their pho­tog­ra­phy,” she said.

“They orig­i­nally tar­geted the older girls, but the younger kids jumped on board.”

The pho­to­graphs taken as part of the pro­gram will be on dis­play at the Fre­man­tle PCYC un­til De­cem­ber 21.
