Sun to Rain and Back Again

Phoenix Brighton: OPEN16 Hub

19–30 October

Thurs 11:00–19:00
Wed–Sun 11:00–17:00 

This exhibition features children’s images from two primary schools in Barbados and Brighton in 2016. Artist, curator and facilitator Helen Cammock spent a month in Barbados in February of this year for a Fresh Milk residency. During this time both she and artist Emma Critchley delivered a photography workshop with children in Workmans Primary on the island. Photography and visual literacy activities encouraged the children to represent themselves and their school environment through photographs. The same workshop has been delivered at a primary school in Brighton with the results shown here.The exhibition content and installation images will be sent to Workmans Primary and both schools will be invited to respond to the different images created in the workshops in an exchange of short letters. 

With special thanks to the Fresh Milk International Residency Programme and Workmans Primary, St George, Barbados.

Accessibility: Accessible for wheelchair users.
