Help us encourage students to document the world around them. Through a sponsored walk in September 2014 we are hoping to raise enough money to buy some digital cameras for use in a workshop for students in the spring. The workshop will focus on the importance of documentation in any scientific or academic project.
The students will be asked to take the cameras for a week, and to document something to illustrate a theory, an aspect of climate change, a snapshot of flora in Cornwall as it is currently, or any specific thesis that intrigues them. Their work will be pulled together at the end of the week at the culmination of the upcoming Jenny Leathes Photographic exhibit to be held March 13-22, 2015, at the Helston Museum.
The walk takes place in September, and a couple of members will be walking 7.5 miles in aid of the Hypatia Trust. The walk is organized by the Rotary Club of Penzance, and will be taking place along the cliffs and footpaths, and the weather, of course, will be perfect.
75% of the money raised will go to Hypatia, and 25% to the Rotary Club for the charities that they support.
If you prefer, you can also support us by sending a cheque, made out to ‘The Hypatia Trust’, and sent to the Hypatia Trust, 16 Chapel St, Penzance, TR18 4AW
Any donations towards the mounting of this exhibit, or towards the workshop would be most gratefully appreciated!
