Photography project to bring old and young together

A NEW project, from Lismore City Council as part of the Goonellabah Community Plan, brings together residents in Goonellabah aged 10 to 18 and over 55 for a fun and creative project.

The new Cross Cultural Intergenerational Photography Project has been designed in the hope of building trust and better relationships which in turn increases social inclusion and safety in the area.

"We'll be asking a young person from Goonellabah and a resident over 55 of differing cultural backgrounds to take a photographic portrait of each other," explained Council's Youth & Community Development Officer Lizette Twisleton.

Photographs and stories are to be emailed to virginia.waters@lismore.nsw.gov.au by Thursday, March 28. The exhibition of portraits and stories will be held in May.

Entrants should include name, age, address and phone number. Entries are restricted to one per person.
