As part of the Royal Armouries’ Roll of Honour Project, the RSA Trust has worked with our long term community partners, Enact, to deliver two photography training sessions for young people living on Enfield Island Village this summer.
Photos with your Phone saw a diverse group of nine young people learn how to take better photographs using their phones as well as edit the photos on the devices as well. They received professional tuition courtesy of Little Bear Studio, whilst the RSA Trust’s Heritage Manager gave a tour of historic sites on the Island and a tour of the RSA Interpretation Centre. Photos from the sessions will be exhibited in the Community Hall on Saturday 22nd September as part of London Open House, with visitors encouraged to vote for their favourite pictures. The most popular photo and the most improved photographer will each win a prize.
The project is funded by the National Lottery through a £9,800 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the RSA Trust. Partners include Enfield Local Studies and Archives, Enfield Museum and the Royal Small Arms Factory Apprentices Association and the RSA Trust. It aims to uncover the hidden histories of workers at the factory, both in general and during the two world wars in particular.
