Artists & Associates
Through the first phase of the “Community Portrait” project, BCA and Fujifilm have provided participants, through artist led workshops, the opportunity to produce individual portraits that will come together to produce a community portrait exhibition at Fujifilm HQ Bedford.
Participants will be inspired by visits to state-of-the-art facilities, the latest technologies provided by Fujifilm House and their own relationships and connections in the community. They will learn about the local heritage of photography and the links with Fujifilm who have be present in Bedford and a key employer over the last 40 years.
Individuals, through photography, will produce an image of themselves reflecting their community, they will be proud of and become part of a larger-scale photography installation at the prestigious Higgins Bedford Gallery and Museum in September 2024.
