Virtual Photography Friday 27th August, 24th September, 29th October, 10am
At Richmond Carers Centre we believe that photography can be a powerful way to express ourselves, helping us communicate our feelings in a different way. It can also be a used as a coping mechanism.
There is a different theme each month and you are invited to bring along one picture that represents that theme for you. During the group sessions, you will have the opportunity to share your pictures and to have an open discussion with other carers joining the group. There may also be opportunities for you to exhibit your work in our email communications and on our website.
