We are thrilled to announce that the photobooks produced with the participants of the ‘About us’ project are printed! The project worked with senior residents living in London Hammersmith & Fulham and focused on using visual narrative and photography as a tool for self expression and a means to develop and foster togetherness and friendship. Facilitating this project has been very positive and we are very proud for the achievements that participants accomplished. A special thanks for their valuable support to the funders of the project @hamunitedcharities. Thanks to @hammersmith_community_gardens for hosting our sessions in their wonderful Glasshouses in Ravenscourt park, thanks to #TinaWood@masbrocentre for her valuable assistance and the participants for their trust and eagerness to learn and be open to the creative process.

I would like to express my thanks to everyone for their Nomination, the wonderful participants, the charity Near Neighbours, the London Faith & Belief and Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith. It is an honour that the Photojournalism Hub’s Knowing You project will be receiving a Certificate of Recognition from the Faith and Belief Forum and Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith on the 30th November at The Royal Society of Medicine.
A compelling article ‘Supporting communities throughout the lockdown’ by Near Neighbours on the work that the charity supported throughout the ongoing Covid-19 emergency and how the various groups and organisations have found ways of being relationally close to communities and individuals even when they were physically distant.
The article recounts heart-rending examples here of projects supported by the charity that carried on supporting their communities during lockdown overcoming communication, technical and logistical challenges. I am very humbled that the project ‘Knowing You’ is among the project described in the article. To read about it: https://www.near-neighbours.org.uk/response-covid
