Come and see SHYPP’s next performance showcase

Performance

If You Walked A Mile PUBLIC POSTER

Building on the success of last years My Voice performance, we’ve been back working with Toni Cook, offering all young people who SHYPP work with an opportunity for a creative outlet for their stories. The results have been amazing and on the night the young people will be performing spoken word, showing photography and short films which use their writing at its core. We will also have a Q+A with the young people involved.  Our last performance was a full house so please join us to hear the stories of young people in Herefordshire.

NEW Exhibition! Past Futures @ HARC

Media Mentors

The Past Futures exhibition showcases work created by young people accessing SHYPP.  The work is a contemporary response to the Herefordshire Archive and Research Centre in Rotherwas, Hereford.

Items were selected from the archive that had previously been discarded.  The aim was to re-purpose, rearrange and rethink these objects through individual creative responses.

The exhibition includes old maps, burnt parchment documents, discarded micro film, wax seals, marbling from old books and manipulated photographic imagery from the Derek Evans archive (with permission from Catcher Media’s Herefordshire Life Through A Lens Project).

Young people engaged in a series of workshops including forging, marbling, wax sealing, painting, photography, digital design and wood work.  All work was created at the excellent facilities at Hereford MAKE studios.

Get down there if you have the chance, its running from the 11th April – 6th May.
