Join the Community


…isn’t just about the photography, it’s also an opportunity for us to come together as a community around a sense of pride and curiosity of Gloucester. After a long time in lockdown it’s time to pull back the curtains, stretch those legs and make meaningful connections.

We will be offering free photography walks so that people have the opportunity to connect over photography and Gloucester.

Make Photographs, Oral Histories & Soundscapes

Whether with a ‘phone or with a large format camera, choose your streets, find something interesting and make your photograph.  And if you need a little inspiration you can follow the prompts and challenges set by our Heroines and our community.

As well as photographs, we want the living archive to evolve throughout its journey to include texts and audio files  – anecdotes from people reminiscing about the city, things they discover on the journey and stories or sounds to give the images the texture of real life.

Useful Tips

Take a snapshot of the sign at the start of the street and at the end, it makes working out what was where much easier when you get home
Be prepared for all weathers – this is Britain, after all!  Layers are good, as is sturdy footwear.
Keep safe – no photograph is worth getting injured; it’s easy to carried away when you have that perfect picture in sight.
