The PEEL programme has been developed to be run by certified partner organisations that will train in the PEEL Academy and become licensed to deliver PEEL workshops. Via the PEEL Zone, partner organisations will be provided with content and resources.
A series of work sheets and guidelines will help course leaders set up and prepare the PEEL programme with suggestions, tips and ideas of how to create the poems which will then inspire unique photographic portraits.
Writing poetry can seem quite daunting to those who are unfamiliar with it – but the simple interview is a great way to generate ideas. The beauty of poetry is the way it can be rich in meaning without using too many words.
It has been fashionable for many years now to take out all the natural blemishes in portraits and smooth out the very characteristics that make us unique. The PEEL project wants to reverse this trend through a journey of discovery and an understanding of true identity.
