A live event and a town centre exhibition are set to take place in St Helens as part of a six-month residency project.
2020 Vision: An exhibition exploring the future of our world is being led by artist Sophie Mahon. Sophie has been working with young people from Parr, Fingerpost and FourAcre to explore ideas around their visions for the future as well as creating a number of works based on their present day experiences.
As part of the residency, work will be shared with the public via a live event, town centre promotion and an exhibition.
The project, in partnership with Helena Homes Make It Happen project, has lead to a host of exciting future events and outcomes.
Work will be housed in a disused town centre shop from May 4th-21st. The pop up unit will be at Brownlow Arcade (Church Square Shopping Centre).
Sophie explained: “The show looks at the worst and best possible outcomes for the future. The show includes a range of paintings, interactive video works and sculptures and spreads beyond the pop up space as well as shop windows in and around Church Square and throughout community spaces in St Helens.”
The exhibition will be signposted to people across the borough and a private view takes place on Thursday, May 4th (from 5pm-7pm).
