NCB Photography students take part in ‘Shared Spaces’ research project

In June, Photography students from New College Bradford participated in the Shared Spaces research project in collaboration with Bristol University’s School of Education and attended workshops with social documentary photographer Shy Burhan. The aim was to bring together people from different ethnic backgrounds for a ‘photomission’ during which they took pictures of places around Bradford that make it easy, or difficult, to interact or hang out with people of different ethnicities. At the end of the mission students edited and captioned their best pictures, to explain what the pictures mean to them. 

The images will be displayed in an exhibition later in the year, venue and date TBC. 

(The Shared Spaces Project, funded by the Economic and Social Research council, explores the factors that influence whether or not young people in the UK chose to interact with people from different ethnic, religious or racial groups.
