Through a series of workshops the young people engaged with a team of professional artists to explore and develop this concept through their own ideas.
From this work a exhibition was created to showcases their interpretation of this concept. There has been richness within both the ethnic backgrounds of the young people and in the variety of environments from which they come. One of the students really made it all worthwhile saying:
“I am really looking forward to the exhibition. I think it will be a great experience and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of the project. It has really inspired me and taken me on a journey of self-discovery.”
There is a wide range of artworks in the exhibition and they show real credit on the all those young people that have demonstrated the determination to be part of the journey. The exhibition premiered at the Library of Birmingham on 22nd January 2014 and will tour around various regional venues until July 2014.
