CLick Happy Logo

Where a Photography Course meets an Award-winning wellness course.

  • Click Happy is where Photography meets Philosophy
  • It is a program that uses visual storytelling to dig below your surface and to help you connect with your creative spirit.
  • It started as a means to help girls develop self-compassion to combat body shame but we realized that self-compassion was needed everywhere not just in young girls.
  • Our pilot project won the Health and Wellbeing category for the Wellington community awards and we have only gotten better since the pilot projects.
