Blind Photography – a day in the life


Their blurb… 

United Way Sydney is currently coordinating an initiative called ‘Local Eyes’ – an event that celebrates expressions of our community through a different lens.

This is a photographic exhibition with a difference: 45 individuals supported by our community partners have been given training, a digital camera, and paired up with a volunteer mentor, to take photos of the Sydney they live in. The photographs will be featured in a free public exhibition at Customs house from 26 – 29 March. Please drop in and pay us a visit, the opening hours are listed below

  • Friday – 9am to 8pm
  • Saturday – 10am to 4pm

United Way Local Eyes Website

In addition we are pleased to announce that our Local Eyes website is now live! This site provides an interactive location to view some of the photos taken by our 40 participants and to learn more about them and the community organisations that support them.

A key feature of the site is our Voting and Feedback sections where we would like to encourage you to show your support by voting for the ‘People’s Encouragement Award’ (to be announced mid-May). You can also leave messages of support for the photographers. It’s a great tool for everyone to engage with their local community – and receiving feedback will mean a lot to the participants. Please visit and pass this link along so others can get involved!
