Postcards from Culter

Postcards from Culter is one of three UEP projects taking place as part the AHRC Connected Communities Festival 2015.

It is a community photography project exploring how place, participation and culture are intertwined in Culter, a village on the edge of Aberdeen. A series of photography workshops and sensory interventions will result in the creation of postcards series exploring the community’s sense of place.
