PhotoRenga – Photography Workshops
The workshop on Friday 19 August will be open to anyone who has had a brain injury.
The workshop on Saturday 20 August will be open to anyone!
The PhotoRenga workshops are open to six people with an adventurous spirit on each day. Participants will start from g39, split up and take photographs on various themes. After reviewing the images, one image from each person’s camera will be chosen and passed on to another in the group. This image will be used as the source or inspiration to produce a new set of photographs from which one image will be selected and so on… By the end of the day, we will have created a series of collective PhotoRengas.
Participants will just need a digital camera, clothing to cope with whatever the weather throws at us and a willingness to share and create!

PhotoRenga are inspired by an ancient form of Japanese poetry, in which sequences of haiku construct complex and profound poems. The aim of the PhotoRenga project is to produce a series of short, collective visual rengas using photography.
The project began when members of the Cardiff & Vale Brain Injury Group produced PhotoRengas in an ongoing workshop programme started in 2010.
To date the one-day PhotoRenga workshops have been hosted by Ffotogallery in Penarth and the Hanbury Road Gallery in Bargoed. The PhotoRengas will be produced in an eBook and as an exhibition in the future.
