As part of Doors Open Day 2015, we enjoyed a great partnership with Historic Scotland, Creative Stirling, Stirling Libraries and Archives and Bricks4Kidz - putting together an exciting programme of activities which engaged young people creatively with their environment. With Picture the Past! we ran three weekend photography workshops and produced a digital photographic exhibition to share at The Engine Shed - Historic Scotland's National Conservation Centre in Stirling.
Picture the Possible's project took young people into the Old Town of Stirling. With the help of an 1820's map by John Wood, provided by Stirling Archives, our young photographers learned how the city has grown and changed over the recent past. Navigating the old streets, discovering little known corners and exploring the built environment, their photographs formed a central part of the Doors Open Day exhibition in September. A fun, educational and unique partnership, where the young photographers made a great contribution to Stirling's celebration of European Heritage day!
