The My Place Photography Learning Project was a two year pilot project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by Historic Scotland.

The project culminated in an exhibition at The Lighthouse Glasgow, March - May 2015.

The Scottish Civic Trust would like to thank Eastern Digital and StudioStand who generously supported the My Place exhibition.
