Livingstone’s Living Legacy: Football and the Three Cs is Camera Voices’ first project. Building upon the Livingstone legacy, the project develops new links between Scotland and Southern Africa and shows the importance of sport for social change
It is said David Livingstone took a football to Africa. He is particularly remembered for advocating the three Cs – Christianity, Commerce and Civilisation. Community football teams from Play Soccer Malawi in Blantyre, the Manda Wilderness Community Trust in Mozambique, the Landirani Trust (now called African Vision Malawi in the UK) and Edinburgh and Glasgow teams from Street Soccer Scotland were interviewed and given disposable cameras to photograph their interpretation of the three Cs. These were adapted slightly for the project to Christianity and other religions, Commerce and Culture. In the team portraits by Claire Foottit, the Saltire football represents David Livingstone.
We are thrilled that this exhibition is taking place in the premises of the Scottish Football Museum, at Hampden Park, the home of Scottish Football. The exhibition has been made possible by a Celebrate Award from the National Lottery, for which we are immensely grateful. Opening on 25 November 2014, the exhibition runs until 22 May 2015 and has free entry. Thereafter, it is available to tour.
This is an ongoing, not-for-profit, social documentary photography project.
