Documenting Young People’s Experiences of Self Isolation
An Online Photography Project
The National Youth Council of Ireland wants to document what life has been like for young people during the current public health restrictions. We would like to hear from youth work services and organisations who would like to support young people to take photographs of their daily lives and help them submit to NYCI for inclusion in an online gallery illuminating what life is like for young people across the country during the current restrictions and recording this experience for the future.
Excellent photographs can be taken on phones and submitted easily to us, so no specialist equipment is required. You can also avail of support from a photography practitioner if you choose. We will set a small photography challenge each week for young people to photograph and ask you to submit some of their work to NYCI each week. This will be compiled into an online photo gallery of their experiences of the current health crisis and the impact on their lives, hosted on NYCI’s youth.ie website.
Up to 10 groups
