Photography and Film making taster workshops at Brayards Estate

This project providing four taster photography and film making workshops is now finished

Brayards Estate Tenants & Residents Association
(BETRA) worked with partner organisations Southwark Community Safety (SAVU) and Embrace Cooperation Ltd to run four taster workshops at Brayard Estate. The workshops where based at Brayard Estate community hall (Ryegates tower block) which has provided by BETRA free of charge.

All participants where asked to fill out feedback forms. We were overwhelmed with the amount of positive feedback about the workshops. All  the participants apart from one participant rating all workshops learning experience, content & trainers at 8 out of ten or higher. With some of the younger participants on the workshops even giving feedback ratings of 11, 12 & 13 out of ten.

From feedback we found the majority of participants preferred future activities to be run on weekends, but we also had a lot of the younger participants preferring school holiday activities. We also got some great constructive feed back from participants which we hope to apply on any future workshops at Brayards Estate.

Quotes from participants included:

"Just to say a big thank you for another so enjoyable photography workshop that took place yesterday"

"Similar photo workshops welcome!"

"More photography, as many of them as possible here"

Including these requests for more photography / film making workshops, we also had quite a few requests for art & craft activities which we are hoping to get funding for.
