Thursday 17th November is an exciting day for Active Arts as it will be the launch of the Me You & Everything Else exhibition at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
From the 18th November 2011 to the middle of April 2012, members of the public will be able to see our fantastic photographic exhibition on view in the community gallery space.
The original installation of photographic screens, has been added to for this new exhibition with some of the photos selected and printed on large exhibition boards accompanied by quotes from participants. There is also a new short film made with young people from The Sanctuary and a display case of objects selected with residents from Phoenix Court.
If you haven’t had the chance to see the exhibition on its current tour of Castle Vale venues, here’s your chance to see it in a fantastic location and if you have seen it already, come and see how it has evolved.
For those of you who haven’t heard about the project before Me, You & Everything Else was a photographic project developed by Active Arts Castle Vale for an intergenerational group of residents. It explored life on Castle Vale today, using the local landscape and the personal stories of participants. The project ran from October 2010 to March 2011, working with two groups of young people from the local secondary school and community centre, and older participants living in sheltered accommodation.
A big thank you to all the original participants and artists as well as to those who have been involved this time in its expansion.
If you’d like to come to the private opening please get in touch with us.
When you do go and visit over the next 5 months it’s on view, do come back to our website and tell us what you think.
