Edinburgh Young Carers capture the View from Lochend Park

JACK ARTS Scotland teamed up with Edinburgh Young Carers, a charity that offers support to young people who care for somebody at home, to present a selection of images from their workshop View from Lochend Park at our sites near the green space in Edinburgh.

Exploring a range of different Lomography cameras during a collaborative workshop with Tiny Changes, Scotland’s first national youth mental health charity, a group of young carers aged 12–15 years old were encouraged to view the world in unexpected ways through the camera lens. Over 400 images were shortlisted to 12 to showcase in a city-wide public art display across our poster site and drums in Edinburgh.

Khadea, who led on the project, said: ‘Our public parks are places we connect, shift our perception of the everyday through the magic of analogue. Through this workshop, we captured what it means to be outdoors in green spaces and finding moments of joy!’.

In the spirit of working to help young minds feel better, this creative project offered the group respite from caring responsibilities, a sense of belonging and connection to their local environment.

‘This is a path I have taken to the park before, but I’m viewing things differently through these cameras.’
