‘Chilling like a Villain’ – This photo taken by Jason (11), featuring Rhys (9) is the WINNER of a #photocompetition run by @corkcitycouncil as part of a consultation on ‘What young people think makes cork great’. The consultation was a method used to encourage #youngpeople to input into the new Cork City Development Plan.
“The Best thing about Cork is the green fields and parks to chill out and hang around”
Both Jason & Rhys received a voucher each for @kilgrewscycles in Cork City. Thanks to Hugh & all at Cork City Council.
The photo was taken as part of a #Photography workshop run by Youth Worker Joe Curtin ( @joeyouthwork ) & Arts Coordinator Davy Dummigan from the brand new @cork_creates arts project that covers the whole city.
The 10 young people that attended the workshop in July of this year where given tasks by Davy to perform which gave the young people an insight into how to take a good photo with their phones. Later that week, some of these young people attended the Youth Centre in The Hut where Joe assisted the young people to submit them to the Cork City Council Competition.
This photography journey was inspired by a training facilitated by The National Youth Council of Ireland ( @nyci.ie ). The aim of the training was to explore photography as a creative and exciting medium for engaging young people.
Youth Work Ireland Cork runs many projects and services that target the young people of Gurranabraher & Churchfield. These projects are mostly funded through the UBU Scheme by The Cork ETB Youth Services.( @corketbyouthservices )
