What's Happening Liverpool?
Some of the latest opportunities from Liverpool's wellbeing and creative communities.
On Tuesday 10th May, Rob Collier is leading another Walk & Talk Photo group in Allerton Towers.
Here's what Rob says about the event: I decided to create these events for a couple of reasons; I have battled with mental health for most of my life, hitting complete rock bottom and attempting to take my own life. I got involved with a number of groups to help me overcome my adversities and battle my mental health issues, many of these groups held walk & talk events. These events where great for getting people together, embracing nature, talking to people who have faced similar issues and just to get out the house helped me massively with not just my mental wellbeing but also physically. However, being an avid photographer, whilst on these walks I would always want to stop and take photos of things that pleased the eye, nature, landscapes, animals etc and would find myself falling behind from the group. This is where the idea of creating a walk & talk photo group came in. A great way for like minded individuals to get together, share camera skills and experience, teach and learn from others, whilst meeting new people and improving our wellbeing by being out in nature and embracing some of the wonderful scenery we have on our doorsteps. These events are completely FREE to all who attend and open to anybody of any age and skillset, from complete camera novices to seasoned professionals, all are welcome.
