About the Book
The aim was for the young people to capture a day in the life of their local community, Lochgilphead. It also allowed the young people to create a range of visual information through observing and recording from their own experiences and to have the freedom to discover and choose ways to create imagery which would bring their local community to life – as well as providing a platform for the young people to both work as a team, independently and have fun.
The Project was funded by Argyll and Bute Youth Services and organised by Argyll and Bute Youth Services in partnership with TALC. Media Art & Design.
The Templar Arts and Leisure Centre (talc.) is located at the beautiful harbour front in Tarbert – a small fishing village in Kintyre, Argyll in Scotland. We help youth- and community groups to create books. Our Media Art and Design programme offers courses and projects in Contemporary Visual and Media Arts, Digital Photography and Image Manipulation, Illustration and Graphic Design, Book Layout, Artists books, Patterns for Textile Print, Media Sculpture and Installation – and more. There are educational, theme-based projects and professional software training – but also fun sessions for everyone. Participants print their books with blurb.
