Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Inspired by the Albert Beaney collection of 40,000 photographs of Swindon residents in the 40s, 50s and 60s, 130 young people aged between 11-16 will be using these images to create their own exhibition about Swindon’s community history.
Funded by a £25,000 award from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Back to Black and White project is a partnership between Swindon Borough Council’s Create Studios & Swindon Museum and Art Gallery and Swindon Youth Forum. The Youth Forum members– all completing their Arts Award – are working alongside professional artist Dani Landau to create their exhibition and gain a range of new skills including photography, digital media, photograph handling and curatorial skills. Their exhibition will take place at Artsite’s Post Modern gallery on 1-7 August.
