'The Changing Lenses - London stories of integration' project ran 9 hands-on workshops where migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, and Britons explored the possibilities of photography, writing and podcasts to tell stories of integration from our perspectives. The 9 sessions aimed to:
 
·         Encourage creative expression through photography;
·         Develop practical introductory photography and writing skills;
·         Work on how to put words and images together to create a powerful message.
 
The workshops explored the subject of integration from many angles including: what it means to us, what helps and hinders the process, the impact of negative debate and hate crime, and what creates a sense of belonging.

The project culminated with an exhibition at the Guardian Newspaper's gallary of a selection of the photos from the project.
