Really pleased to formally announce I have been chosen as one of the artists commissioned to make a piece of art as part of the Exeter Community Centre’s Past Present Future Project
I am very excited to be involved and will be making a window for the Centre in response to the memories and discussions of local people over 60 who live locally, or have a connection to the St David’s area of Exeter.
I have been greatly helped by the West of England School Association with archive material (including some excellent photographs of past students) and hopefully I will be running my workshop with past alumni of the school. This is really exciting to me as I cant wait to hear their memories of the school and what they have gone on to do since those days. Being a visual artist I am obviously very dependent on my sight and its going to be a fabulous challenge to make
prestigious past student of the school
something which will also appeal to the other senses and to get the opinions of people without sight.
St Davids is an ancient part of Exeter, with a rich and very varied history; capturing the memories of people who have a life-long connection with this central Exeter district will be really fascinating.
What we need is LOTS of memories of the area, so if you know a person who is over 60 and wants to be part of the project then please encourage them to get involved!
