THE BOOTH CENTRE

The Booth Centre has been assisting those affected by homelessness in Manchester for over twenty years.
Its mission – to bring about positive change in the lives of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, helping them plan for, and, realise a better future. As part of this mission the Centre runs an innovative Arts Programme which enables the artists to express their talents and develop artistically.

 

MATT PRIESTLEY

A free-lance photographer for the last twenty years. Prior to that, he worked for ten years in statutory social work in Greater Manchester. He has run photography projects with a variety of public and charitable organizations over the years who support and advocate for vulnerable groups. The projects have encouraged participants to document and reflect on their lives, learn key aspects of the photographic process, and stage exhibitions of their work in public spaces and prestigious art venues.
