40 people: 40 stories: 40 accounts of passion
A photo portrait project and exhibition to explore, talk to, acknowledge and celebrate people within the community in Reading that dedicate themselves in activities motivated by a passion, a personal drive (could be volunteers, artists, activists, entrepreneurs). It is a local project, as it focuses on people that work within and with, the local community and look more into what possibly is an aspect of Reading that many people are not aware of. As we know normally Reading gets a pretty bad press (see the recent “clone Towns” survey) for me this is also a way of telling a different story and putting some faces in this story of people that break a mould. All these people have some form of connection with Reading, either through live, work, education or taking part.
