To the Lighthouse!

with the Lighthouse Community Centre, comissioned by Arts Lab
Funded by FEAST, Arts Well and Headstart Kernow
Spring-Summer 2022

The Lighthouse Community Centre (Liskeard, Cornwall) provides support services for people of all ages in the town and surrounding area. The organisation runs activities, workshops, clubs and events that inspires, educates, and helps develop skills and confidence for future life.

Ellie worked with the group at the centre to produce collection 13 of The Photobook Project. The girls set their themes: in the woods, pattern and colour, teenage dream and murder mystery, and an activity with each. The result was a beautiful set of images and books which reflect the creativity, resilience, friendship and joy shared between the group. 

This project marked the first series in The Photobook Project to work solely with young people. It was a huge success and proved the adaptablity of the project to work outside of people living with dementia, due to it’s inclusive design and adaptive nature.

“It’s amazing to see them out in the woods together like this... we were always out exploring like this when we were younger!”
