Update / Rewards / etc..

Hi everyone! 

We hope you are all out enjoying this glorious weather!

All is well here at Positive Light Projects. We started our first series of workshops last week! A 9 week participatory photography programme in partnership with Exeter Homeless Partnership. It is so exciting to finally see the space being used! We have lots more planned over the summer which we will be releasing details of soon so keep an eye on the website and our social media if you're interested in getting involved.

Rewards update.

A quick update on what is happening with each of the rewards.

T-Shirts, Limited edition screen prints, postcards and tote bags. Apologies for the delay in getting these out, it has been challenging getting groups together to create these and accessing equipment / materials, for the obvious reasons! We are working on these over the next couple of weeks so you should have them by the middle of August, if all goes to plan!

Artist Prints. These were all sent out a couple of weeks ago so anyone that chose an artist print should have it by now. (With the exception of international order which should go out next week, theses have been held up by various export issues due to the B word!). If you are UK based and you haven't received your print please let us know.

Individual / Couples / Family Portraits. We have had to hold these back due to Covid restrictions but if things open up again as planned on Monday we should be able to go ahead. We are provisionally booking in 3 days where these will be taken. Friday 30th July, Tuesday 24th August and Saturday 25th September. These are provisional at the moment but we will confirm next week and send out details of how to book a time slot. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the process and the set up time involved we will not be able to offer portraits outside of the scheduled days. We did state that these would be on allotted days on the Crowdfunder and we have tried to spread them out as best we can to make them as accessible as possible to as many people as possible but if you are not able to make any of the days and you would like to take your money back we can arrange this. (But hold fire until we release the official days just in case there has to be any changes).

Name a studio. We will reach out to each of you individually. Start thinking about what you want to call it!

Tour of the building. We will reach out to each of you individually.

 

Thank you once again to all of you for your support in bringing the Positive Light Projects Creative Hub to life!!

Very best wishes,

Brendan
