Also as part of the Life Long Learning Festival Programme the Cope Foundation and Photo Legends present a photography exhibition called Out and About in Cork. This exhibition will be open all week and running into the following weeks until 17th April. The Photo Legends are a group of 9 young people supported by Cope Foundation. They, although from different services namely; Bonnington Training Centre and QDS Hub, have united in their interest and passion for photography and desire to learn more about the medium. The group was formed in November 2016 and meet every Thursday to go on field trips around the city or work on ideas for presenting the photos taken on the trips, in Mayfield’s Community Development Project. The Photo Legends collaborate with tutor Jorge Ruiz Villasante- an established photographer and teacher in Cork. All hope to further progress with knowledge and skills learned to go on to study a QQI in photography and team up with other photography groups in the community. This exhibition forms part of St peter’ Cork Life Long Learning Festival programme.
