The Cause
The auction will raise funds to support an outreach youth programme in Westminster, in addition to young artists through Positive View Foundation. Outreach youth work involves meeting young people where they are at, in their communities. Youth workers aim to reach out and make contact with young people who may have little access to provision and introduce them to what's on offer. The aim of the work is to enable young people to develop their full potential as individuals and as members of our Westminster community.

Film "How photography changed our lives"

Film "How photography changed our lives"

Young people launch their own emotional film during which they each tell their own very different stories of how photography has completely transformed their lives.

Produced and Directed philanthropically by Positive View Ambassador Andrew McGovern each young person reveals for the first time the unbearable experiences they endured early in life – and how this has been overcome by participating in the Positive View Youth Empowerment Programme.

“The work of the charity Positive View can be read on two levels: Andrew Page, founder, has used photography to change the lives of people from difficult backgrounds by giving them both the means and encouragement. The young photographers themselves have each taken the opportunity to literally in both hands to open for us a window into their lives, and show the important influences on them: their family, chaotic living or social anxiety”.
