Ffotogallery Education works with schools, charities, local government and education agencies, as well as commercial clients, to devise and deliver large-scale socially engaged creative projects. Placing artists and fresh perspectives at the heart of each project, we encourage participants to approach issues of place, identity, history and society using photography, video and digital media within a structured learning programme. Project outcomes include exhibitions, publications, as well as virtual outcomes such as digital environments, games and online resources.
