>>During the summer holidays Y Touring and One KX are offering a group of young people a fantastic creative opportunity.

If you or anyone you know is between 14 and 19 and interested in getting involved in a photography project exploring our perceptions of body image then this could be the perfect project to get involved in.
With Wellcome Collection and Bloomsbury Festival we are offering a number of free places on a project that will make us question the way we look at ourselves and how society makes us feel about our bodies. Participants will be given professional photographic training to create a visual response to the subject matter that will aim to open up honest discussion about how we feel about our bodies and increase body confidence.
The photographs collected will form an exhibition held at the Bloomsbury Festival in October 2010 with pieces being displayed all around the area in open public spaces and actually inside the Wellcome Collection
Training and preparatory workshops will begin on Friday August 20th 2010 and run for a full week 10:00 till 15:00. After the training period there will be weekly sessions and catch up meetings to suit people timetables. All equipment will be provided the only thing we need is interest, imagination and the willingness to engage with the subject matter.
For more information please contact Steve Byrne on 020 7520 3096 or email steven.byrne@ytouring.org.uk
We are also looking for models of all shapes and sizes to take part in the project, so if you fall into the age bracket and fancy being the inspiration that sparks off the creative imagination then please get in touch.
