Photographic Minds- New Brighton Trip

Photographic Minds was established as a social group for adult mental health service users, aiming to improve their well being and empowerment by focusing on the activity of photography. On Tuesday 17th February, as part of the Culture Guides Program the group visited New Brighton for a photo walk. We walked along the front, visited the fort on Perch Rock and went to the driftwood sculpture/ pirate ship known as the black pearl. The group thoroughly enjoyed the trip which has helped to increase their confidence and develop their photography. Further details on the group can be found here.
