Imagine Me in Leeton and Griffith

Imagine Me is an innovative project empowering people with spinal cord injury, to explore their imagination in creative photography and digital-imaging workshops. 

The aim being to foster greater community understanding towards people living with disability, and open up new creative opportunities by building skills and fostering community engagement.

Participants are invited to a series of workshops where they develop their creative imagination and learn photography in the process of making a self portrait. using photographic equipment specially adapted for people with limited mobility. This equipment enables someone with quadriplegia to control a digital camera and professional photographic studio using a mouth-stick with a mobile-phone.

In the workshops participants learn skills in photography through a creative process involving experimentation and expressing ideas, primary to the process of making art. Peer support is a valuable part of community health and well-being and this workshop process encourages people to share stories, to build resilience and broaden and build new social networks.

The longer-term vision for Imagine Me is to run creative workshops along with a touring exhibition of the artworks across Australia, that will raise public awareness and foster greater empathy for people living with disability, and encourage participation in the cultural life of local communities.

Imagine Me will be at the Griffith Library from 2-7 November and at Leeton Multipurpose Centre from 9-14 November. Phone 0412 810 745 or email imagineme [at] royalrehab.com.au
