They say a picture’s worth a thousand words … Saint David’s Uniting Church, Gelliwastad Road, invites you to help us explore what “Our Community” means to individuals and groups in and around Pontypridd: what are its needs, its assets, its beauty, its history and what could or should be done to enhance its image and improve its life. As a first step we invite you to participate in a photographic event where individuals or groups submit a photograph which encapsulates what “our Community” means to them.
Your contribution may be as simple as one photograph, or you may as a group decide you would like to present a series or collage of photographs. Your contributions will form a public exhibition at the church during the month of March 2014 which will include workshops, discussions and light refreshments. There will be prizes for the best exhibits contributed by children. We invite you to show us what Pontypridd looks like to you:
- What you love about Ponty
- What we should be celebrating
- What’s strong about our community
- Its weaknesses
- What worries, upsets or disturbs you about it
Your photo might be a picture of:
- a person
- a group of people
- people at work or at play
- people in trouble or in need
- people in the middle of their problems – or their achievements
- an event
- a club, a choir or a team
- a place or building
The invitation is to:
- clubs and organisations
There will be a prize for:
- the best individual photograph
- the best display by a school or youth group
