An exhibition of images by members of Chance2Change, a community peer support in Drumchapel, to represent health inequalities. The images were produced by members using their own lived experience of the themes such as homelessness, neglect, and substance misuse.
In 2023, Chance2Change were commissioned by the Queens Nursing Institute Scotland (QNIS) to undertake photojournalism work exploring health inequalities in partnership with Inclusive Images and Clydesider.
The topics included homelessness, grief, trauma, early deprivation and neglect, addiction, poverty, and physical ill health. These topics were all part of a professional development programme for community nurses and midwives and the project was funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing.
The School of Health and Wellbeing at The University of Glasgow is pleased to host this thought-provoking exhibition in Byres Community Hub during SMHAF. It will be displayed alongside a collaborative needle felting piece ‘Drumchapel in the Spring’, which shows colour, life and hopes and prayers for the future which Chance2Change members were also involved in as part of a Drumchapel LIFE project with Lin-Pin Craft.
C2C will also be screening some of their films in our Clarice Pears building where Byres Community Hub is located.
