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.
