Shabang! announce 2013 calendar release – ‘We are not just models, we are role models’

Shabang! are thrilled to launch a 2013 calendar with a difference. The full colour calendar features children and young people from Shabang projects. Each month depicts a witty seasonal theme and together with signs and symbols to aid communication the calendar is an exciting new educational tool for families and schools alike.

More importantly we see the children featured in the calendar as much more than models  – they are role models. Images of people with additional learning needs are few and far between in the media or in educational resources. So we thought it was about time a positive, happy collection of photographs was produced and a calendar seemed to be the ideal vehicle to bring a series of images together.

Working alongside photographer Mike Barratt from Frogs Design, we have created rich backdrops which tell seasonal stories – from Felix’s declaration of love for February’s Valentine Day to Archie’s summer picnic in July.

The calendar celebrates a range of models from 8 month old Ella to 18 year old Max.

Local Huddersfield print firm Brooke and Learoyd have generously donated a proportion of their fee towards the costs.

The Calendars are A3 size, full colour and cost £9.99 + p&p
