Nature Heals | Photography Screening

Corn Exchange, Dorchester

Join us for a mindful moment at the Corn Exchange. Drop in and relax in front of a superb display of nature photography by Trevor Parsons, shown on a loop on our giant projection screen and accompanied by beautiful music and nature soundtrack.
Trevor is a local photographer with an amazing story to tell about the healing power of the camera and nature: his passion for photography helped him through two mental breakdowns and he has now dedicated himself to telling his story and trying to help others.
Supported by Dorchester Arts Dress Circle donors and RiskSTOP.
