County Hall exhibition success

15th April 2015

Service-users of Pathways on Derwentside were thrilled to open their first exhibition at County Hall in Durham. The exhibition was opened by the Mayor of Durham on 7 April and it runs until 21 April 2015.

The participants created the works with iPads, using double exposures and enhanced photos taken on a field trip to the Baltic Museum of Contemporary Art and portraits of each other. And they created a video installation using various video effects and VJ technology.

The work was created during a six week course funded by Durham’s Community Chest and was so well received that it will now tour Durham Town Hall, its Claypath Library and hopefully more than thirty secondary school right across the county.

Diane Howe of Derwentside Pathways said: “I want to express a massive thank you! The Pathways photographic exhibition was hugely successful, the students were delighted to see their work displayed so beautifully in County Hall, and I am so very grateful to you for your magnificent input.”

The groups aim to continue with their digital media and iPad training, and Digital Voice is currently fundraising to help them to make this happen.
