We have just published in the latest Hands on Handsworth Magazine a feature on Photographer Liz Hingley. The Guardian last Saturday 26th Feb also ran a much longer story about faith along the Soho Rd and printed one of Liz Hingley’s photos

Back in September and October we ran a range of workshops to try and encourgae local people to get involved in a new community journalist project. The aim of the project is to take forward the idea to create a community magazine for Handsworth written by local people. Through the neighbourhood management programme, Tracey Thorne created two pilot issues on Hands on Handsworth.
The Community Journalist Project is now being developed and facilitated by Karl Greenwood from Multistory and Brian Homer from Homer Creative. They have been supporting many local people to get involved and start writing some stories.
Down load the first editions which has been mainly written by local people. Congratulations to them for creating an interesting edition…I look forward to reading more.
If you would like to get involved contact Karl details in the magazine attached. Or if you would like a paper copy collect from Handsworth Community Fire Station or email me your address; email@example.com
In may the first edition of the Hands on Handsworth Magazine was published. I got lots of postive feedback about the magazine and residents continue to be interested in getting a regular local publication with news and stories about Handsworth.
I am interesting in getting ideas for this next edition and welcome contributions of stories & photos from the community. If you’re interested please drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or cal me on 0121 303 3401.
