Event description
Artist Paul McDonald hosts an empowering two-day workshop working with participants to develop a series of photographic self portraits.

About this Event

In this two-day practical workshop participants will create photographic portraits through a co-creation process led by artist Paul McDonald.

Upon enrolment participants will receive a series of questions to be answered. These answers are kept confidential from the group, however, can be shared if participants wish to. As part of the process, Paul will guide the group in how they can use their personal responses to the questions to create their mood boards and subsequent photographic work.

At the end of the workshop each participant will have a unique portrait of themselves inspired by the mood boards and self-reflections of each participant. On Sunday 26 April, photos and mood boards produced by the participants will be exhibited in The Dax Centre’s Library Gallery as part of The Dax Centre’s finissage event for the From Heart + Mind exhibition.
