change:matters Photography


“You might not be a natural numbers person, so learning about these concepts through an artform is a brilliant opportunity”

Create photographer Alicia Clarke

In our change:matters photography workshops, young carers learn about saving, budgeting, interest, borrowing money and debt through the lens of a camera.

Led by professional photographers including Alicia Clarke (who can be seen in the video above), the young carers explore these themes through photography – learning lighting and framing skills that they then use in designing glossy posters. Each poster conveys a key message that the young carers have learnt, and wish to pass on to other young people.
