Experience mindful photography - slowing down and using the camera as a means to really look at your surroundings and connect with nature.
As a group you will learn about how to use mindful photography to improve your mental health and wellbeing before taking an individual walk to explore the forest. Take your new perspective and a fresh eye to engage with the natural setting before returning to the group to share photos in guided discussions about using art as a means to explore and enhance our relationship to our environment.
No technical skills or equipment required - participants can use mobile phones as cameras. Suitable for 16+.
