These Hands Photographic Exhibition


During the summer of 2011, the Tricycle Theatre delivered a project that engaged the group in two creative disciplines to explore identity through drama and photography. Working with creative practitioners, the participants were afforded an opportunity to explore notions of self and community through photography – the subject matter being objects and locations that had a personal value attached to each artist. The work was captured using a medium format and disposable film cameras.

I enjoyed it because it was a new experience and we got to meet Adrian, Madelaine and Anna and that was a nice opportunity. I enjoyed doing the photography and seeing how all the plays came together.

Since 2009, the Tricycle has been delivering arts projects with the Irish Traveller community in Brent on an on-going basis. The various projects have provided cultural exchange as a positive activity, as well as developing skills, improving confidence and inspiring young people to participate in the arts.

The project is part of the Tricycle Theatre’s Social Inclusion Programme, which provides innovative and exciting activities, informed by the creative and performing arts that stimulate alternative avenues of self-expression for children and young people at risk of or already experiencing social exclusion.
