The funding will allow the group to run community-based
workshops and present an ambitious exhibition across the West
Midlands as part of November's SHOUT Festival.
Viv Harrison, of Eye to Eye, told DIVA: "This is fantastic news
for Eye to Eye. The funding will be used to carry out a series of
photography workshops across the West Midlands throughout summer
2011, bringing together women from diverse communities to celebrate
the creativity of women and to encourage discussion and exploration
of issues affecting women and their lives."
Founded only last year with seed funding from Birmingham LGBT,
Eye to Eye is considered a thriving initiative.
This additional funding will allow the group to purchase vital
equipment and provide training opportunities for women.
SHOUT Festival Producer David Viney comments "This is fantastic
news for Eye to Eye and we look forward to seeing the results of
this innovative community project as part of SHOUT 2011."
