Marymass Through the Lens – is a project recording this year’s Marymass Celebrations in photographs leading to a web based exhibition. Several photographers took part and the photographs will be made available over the coming weeks and months. If you took photographs at Marymass but were not part of the official project, is it not too late to get involved. Your photographs can be selected for the exhibition and we can start planning early for next year’s festival.
To get involved with Marymass Through the Lens, phone Joyce of Marymass Folk Festival on 01294 551047 or email her at JoyceIFC@aol.com. As with the Folk Festival Fringe, Marymass Through the Lens has been made possible with support of an Awards for All grant.
The aim is to document all aspects of Marymass, including the town festival and the folk festival. The intention is to display photographs in an Exhibition later in the year. This is likely to be a web based exhibition but we hope that some of the photographs will be selected for display in the town and will be seen in future years as we build a festival photo archive.
Whilst the age range is 18+, younger people with a genuine enthusiasm will be considered – but no unaccompanied children. To register interest for Marymass through the lens, phone Joyce of Marymass Folk Festival on 01294 551047 or email her at JoyceIFC@aol.com.
The first meeting to fully explain Marymass through the lens takes place on Tuesday 16thAugust in Vineburgh Community Centre in Quarry Road. There are two sessions to choose from: 11am to 1pm or 7pm to 9pm. After this introductory meeting, there will be workshops every day which will last about an hour and support and tuition from experienced photographers will be on hand throughout.
