Telling Worcester's Story Through Faces

50f Published Tuesday, 1st August 2017

Portrait photographer Anand Chhabra is inviting people who have moved to Worcester, either recently or long ago, to participate in, and contribute to his new portrait project, 'Moving to the City'.

Anyone who has come to live in the City is invited to come along to The Hive and meet Anand and Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service on Thursday 17 August between 11am and 3pm to find out more about the project and how they can get involved. 

The artist is interested in participants contributing their own portraits to the project as well as taking portraits himself of volunteers wishing to take part. 

Tips about taking a good portrait will also be part of the session so anyone calling in to The Hive to meet the artist is encouraged to bring along their own camera or mobile phone to experiment with. 

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service will be sharing some of the stories of those who have moved to Worcester in the last 200 years.

Justin Hughes, Community Projects Officer, Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service said: "Telling Worcester's story through faces is a really interesting idea.  The project will not only  complement the many stories we have in our archives about people who have moved to the City up to 200 years ago, but it will also help us to tell the story in a new and different way, whilst exploring the diverse character of the modern city."
