Back to News

Heart of Glass is delighted to announce the launch of 2020 Vision, a new project by Sophie Mahon in collaboration with young people from across St Helens.

Artist Sophie has been artist in residence for the last six months in St Helens, working with young people in Parr, Finger Post and Four Acre.

2020 Vision is a project exploring the future of our world through the perspective of young people in St Helens. The exhibition showcases a number of artworks relating to the past and present and explores the best and worst possible narratives for the future.

The project is a partnership between Heart of Glass and Helena Homes Make It Happen project, and supported through our participation in the Creative Europe funded Collaborative Arts Partnership programme (CAPP).

Over the course of six months Sophie developed workshops with St Helens Youth Service, Wild Card Amateur Boxing Club, St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School, St Augustine’s of Canterbury Catholic High School, The Sutton Academy, Free Runners Derbyshire Hill Family Centre, Parr Library, Chester Lane Library, Holy Trinity Church and 818 group; bringing together a group of young collaborators with whom she has developed the project.
