Bringing Down The Curtain at Weymouth Pavilion

Interesting to hear how Weymouth Pavilion is back on the Council’s agenda. With them again proposing to close it down, this time to make way for a car park. In 2007 digital:works did a project with Westfield Technology College (as it was then called) and St Andrews Primary School about Weymouth Pavilion, as the council were looking for developers to take on this area and redevelop it. We trained the children in filmmaking techniques and interview skills. Together we made a film, which we have dug out of our archives.

Early stage dementia photography project

A photography project, working with Poole Intermediate Care Services (ICP). This was initially to reproduce the ‘Beautiful’ project, but has quickly turned into a social get together where participants share photographs and remember aspects of their lives. Some photography goes on within the sessions. What has been successful is the inclusion of the older peoples photography club, the Happy Snappers.
