I participated in the Imagine Me project in Ballina in 2014. The imagine me project gave me a new interest and opened my eyes.

It is imperative that art is included in peoples lives for essential well-being. These photos and stories make people real and help breakdown barriers.

I think the Imagine Me project will help many people in many different ways – for some people it will be photography skills, and for others it might be in exploring their creative side. I really enjoyed the social aspect of the workshops –the peer support and the personal conversations we had as a group. Other people in the group also found the workshop beneficial – I’ve kept a close relationship with one of the other participants who was very negative and not wanting to engage with the world before participating, but now she is wanting to engage with the world and with other people – she has learnt to accept her circumstances for what they are instead of fighting against the world- that would not have happened without attending the workshop.
