'Cheer up Luv' a photography workshop
CHEER UP LUV
As part of our International Women's Day Celebrations, Ms Goodwin and Ms Bouchaib organised a Photography workshop and talk with feminist photographer Eliza Hatch. Her work is based on young women around the world who have been victim to everyday sexual harassment. Her project Cheer Up Luv has won several awards and is currently exhibiting.
Students took part in an online discussion with Eliza and then undertook a practical workshop.
Cheer Up Luv is an internationally recognised photo and interview series, retelling accounts of street harassment. The project combines photography with journalism, activism and social media, and has gained interest from all over the world. Subjects are photographed in public places related to their experience of harassment, then the stories are featured on @cheerupluv and cheerupluv.com.
The project has traveled from London, to New York, Mexico, Tokyo, and has partnered with the United Nations Population Fund, on an awareness campaign about sexual harassment on public transport in Sri Lanka.
The campaign aims to represent those who don't have a public voice, and to create a community of shared experiences whilst raising awareness about everyday harassment. It has gained coverage from i-D, Dazed, Wallpaper, BBC, and Refinery29 to name a few. It has also been exhibited in Sri Lanka, New York, Germany and London.
