Community Photography & Art Workshops

Fun and accessible photography and arts workshops for young people

About the Project

Charles Adeyemi, founder of Echo Your Sport, delivered six photography and art workshops for two community groups in Islington. The art sessions were run in a mosaic art studio where young people created their own mosaic designs and documented their progress using photography. Charles then led on three separate photography taster workshops where young people were inspired to develop their own passion for photography. In total 15 young people took part in Charles’ workshops.

The Impact

The workshops were a success for both Charles as a facilitator and for those who took part in the projects. Participants developed photography and creative skills while building their confidence, patience and commitment by working with Charles. All of the young people that took part in the workshops enjoyed the experience and the challenge of using their creative talents to make something fresh and original.

“(I liked that) I had help from the art professionals and they inspired me to have a better idea of what to create” Shardai Smith aged 15

“I would recommend this to a friend because we developed a skill in taking photos” Reem Abdulaziz aged 13

Future Developments

Charles is continuing to develop his business Echo Your Sport and is interested in working with Peabody in the future to develop film highlights of other projects run in Peabody communities to highlight the positive work being done with young people across London.

“The experience has helped me to develop communication skills when working with a variety of young people and it has as helped me to know the importance of planning and organising. The experience has given me an opportunity to identify what I am good at and what I can improve on in future projects, it has inspired me to continue to work with young people knowing that I can have a positive impact on their lives.” Charles Adeyemi
