Young Catholics and Protestants took up their cameras to photograph the good and bad aspects of their neighbourhoods. Their photos tell stories about what they think should be celebrated and the bits they could do without. Get a different picture of Northern Ireland through the eyes of young people.
Short Strand is a working class Catholic enclave in the predominantly Protestant district of east Belfast. A peaceline separates Catholics from their working class Protestant neighbours. Despite the tensions young people from the Short Strand Parent and Youth Group worked with young people from the Inner East Youth Project to explore their respective communities and produce a photographic essay of where they lived. Take a closer look at these neighbourhoods and listen to what the pictures mean to the young people who took them.
Young adults from the Protestant Shankill in west Belfast and the Catholic
Poleglass district of Lisburn used photography to explore the similarities
and differences they found in each other's community. Join Vicky and
Jenny as they take you on a tour of their neighbourhood.
The BT5 project in Short Strand and Inner East was a Wheelworks Initiative for young people. Belfast Exposed worked with the young people from the Shankill and Poleglass as part of a Springboard initiative.
