‘Brain Hacks’ was a phone photography project focused on creativity as a tool for wellbeing.
Working with young people from Our Lady’s Catholic College, Lancaster, the project was produced and delivered by photographer Ginny Koppenhol.
Scientific research supports increasingly, the theory that by finding ways to focus on the daily positives of life, we can improve our mental wellbeing. The role of reticular activating system (our brain’s filtration system) is central to much of this research, and highlights our ability to actively shift our perception, which is especially valuable during life’s challenges, as it enables us to view the ‘bigger picture.
