The Second Week of the Soap

Posted by Anne Witton on Friday, January 25, 2013, In : Photo shoot 

Back in August, my friend - celebrated poet Fiona Ritchie Walker - asked me to shoot a cover photo for her latest book, The Second Week of the Soap.

The programme consisted of 3 strands:

  • The impact of amateur arts act...

Ken will be 90 in October and one of his unfulfilled ambitions was to have an exhibition of his paintings. This led Sheila who had no knowledge of art let alone how to organise an art exhibition, to try and fulfil an old man’s dream. For advice she made contact with the Disabled Arts Club ...

This morning I was off to The Sage, Gateshead to take some photos at the RSC Open Stages workshops, which are supported by Voluntary Arts England. Open Stages is an initiative to embrace, develop and celebrate amateur theatre, re-forging the bond with the world of professional theatre.
