REGISTER YOUR SCHOOL FOR SHOW AND TELL SERIES No.2
Show and Tell is designed to seamlessly fit into your school’s curriculum, we even offer live Cisco Webex feedback sessions to bring ideas to life in the classroom. A completely flexible and accessible programme inviting all students and teachers to join in.
Whether you run the workshops as a GCSE or A-Level creative subject session, an after-school club, a lunchtime activity or a separate PSHE project to highlight World Mental Health Day, we want you to be involved.
“I started working with my classes and small groups before promoting this on a whole school basis. I shared the videos with other faculties who use them as a conversation starter. This not only encourages pupils to start talking about Mental Health but it is improving pupil’s confidence, communication skills and understanding”.
Lisa M Ward, Maesteg School
Photography Workshop Films
Our photography workshop films are freely available to all schools and youth clubs. With the guidance of professional photographers and therapeutic photography experts, the films teach the positive link between photography and mental health. Each workshop is accompanied with a task that will encourage the practice of photography as a mindful technique.
To assist your students with the workshop series, we’ve created an easy to follow how-to guide, download here.

Live PHSE x Photography Workshops
Join us next year for our new PHSE focused workshop sessions, exclusively for schools via live stream or watch on-demand. Aligned to Key Stage requirements, the workshops creatively explore some of the most important topics affecting young mental health today, including; body image, bullying, mindfulness, stereotypes and online safety. Sessions will be hosted and available from March 2022.
“The uptake has been brilliant. The children have been chuffed to bits that their ideas were spoken about in the sessions. That photographers and adults outside school value what they have created, this is a really powerful idea and thought”.
Belmont Mill Hill Prep School
We are delighted to announce we will be hosting another national exhibition in February 2022.

Submission open Dec 2021 and close Jan 2022.

“Having the motivation of working towards an exhibition was a really important factor. The students are keen to improve on their work, they were thrilled to be featured in the feedback videos and worked hard to create work that might be considered for the exhibition”.
Green School for Boys
Join the #MyPhotoMyFeeling exhibition
We invite your students to practice their mindful photography skills and submit their images and emotions to the #My Photo My Feeling exhibition. We will reveal how young people across the nation are feeling today, via the largest youth-led photography collection ever run in the UK.
The brief is simple; say how you’re feeling, take a shot that represents the emotion and share it with us to enter.
“Our students greatly benefited from hearing directly from the testimonies of photographers working within the complex subject of mental health and this really set them free to embark on discovering their own voices and enabled them to realise the value of visualising their own feelings and gave them a platform to voice their own opinions. We were overwhelmed with their submissions that they all created in their own time.”
Marina Nimmo, London School of Excellence Tottenham
“I firmly believe that as a pastoral lead it is my duty to ensure that every child feels happy and safe in school. The Show and Tell Project has given me an excellent platform to encourage pupils to express themselves through imagery. I started it with my classes and small groups before promoting Show and Tell on a whole school basis”
Lisa Ward, teacher at Maesteg School
“Selecting meaningful images, choosing their word and mind mapping – have been rewarding activities for them which have enabled them to work in the classroom as well as at home. Photography is wonderful at this age; and in doing something which is different, relaxing, gentle and individual compared to other areas of school – win win for me!”
Robin Warren, head teacher at Primrose Hill Primary School
