We are equipping ourselves to offer participants with disabilities greater control over their digital image making.
Some people with acquired brain injuries find it impossible to hold a camera steady. We are experimenting with
WiFi Gopro cameras and IPads on short tripods for some, and the Magic Arm helps with positioning cameras for
those in wheelchairs.
We held another Behind the Clock visual arts workshop for people in the Out of Home Care community on

an inspiring painting & collage workshop facilitated by Malou Zuidema that got people started creating their own
images. It was a joy.
