Young people join forces with artists for Bow exhibition
A group of Bow schoolchildren are to stage an exhibition on what they think their area will be like in 20 years’ time.
After a successful run last year which saw pupils from primaries, secondary schools and youth clubs pair up with artists, Bow Arts Trust is running another one-off exhibition tonight (Thursday August 4).
The students will have just a few days to come up with ideas for paintings, photographs or visual performances.
Anna sexton, the trust’s community development officer, said: “It’s going to be quite a challenge as a lot of the young people won’t have met before.
“It gives the artists a chance to get more involved with the community and the young people a chance to try out new things. Last year was brilliant so expect the unexpected.”
