‘My Severn’ – An exhibition of mindful photography

An exhibition of mindful photography by Gloucestershire residents ‘My Severn’ showcases how they boosted their mental health and wellbeing by using photography to bring clarity and presence in the moment.

An exhibition of mindful photography opened on 16 November 2021 at Gloucester, Stroud and Stonehouse railway stations in Gloucestershire, encouraging rail travellers to pause and take a new perspective on the world around them. The exhibition will be available to view until early Spring 2022.

Gloucestershire residents boosted their mental health and wellbeing, using photography to bring clarity and presence in the moment. The courses were delivered by Look Again, and commissioned by Canal & River Trust, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The exhibitions were co-curated by the project participants and Miverva Heritage, and are hosted by Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership CIC.

More photographs and information about the project and its partners can be found on our communities programme page here – https://www.unlockingthesevern.co.uk/my-severn-gallery

In Autumn 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we spent time by the River Severn with Ruth Davey from Look Again. We stepped into its story, connected with its nature, and captured its spirit.  We rekindled old memories and shared new experiences with like-minded people. Our online gallery gives you a little insight into what we did. Take a little time, a few mindful minutes, to explore what we produced.  Perhaps you will be inspired to do the same.
