Irish Community Care Merseyside have been working with Twin Vision since 2009 and we have previously worked with them on the very successful Mobile Movies Project.
Twin Vision will be working with both the housed Travellers and families from Tara Park. We are working with all age groups and the project is about capturing the extra ordinary and ordinary lives of the Irish Traveller Community right across Liverpool through photography, film, oral history and animation. Families can have as much or as little involvement in the project, and every family who participates in any way shape or form will be offered a family portrait by Leila Roma and Paul McCann who are delivering the project alongside Chris Chadwick.
Families can have the opportunity to have valuable family photos scanned in order to preserve them, and this is one of the skills that is being taught to people taking part.
Overall the project will run for approximately two years and the aim is to tour the final exhibition to various venues throughout Merseyside and also for the completed product to be exhibited permanently in the new Liverpool Museum.
