About the Event

We will begin with a chance to view Sandra Ketteridge's degree show exhibition of painting. Sandra will share her research with the group and we can discuss our own responses to nature and the environmental crisis. Tutor Emma Drye will then lead a discussion around undertaking a degree in a creative subject, drawing together experiences and perspectives. 

OCA Photography Tutor Les Monaghan is also exhbiting at Fox Gallery and has agreed to give us a run through of his work; Aspirations10. 

In 2014 photographer Les produced 76 portraits of people at Highwoods Community Base and what was then, Mexborough School.

In each portrait a young person sits next to their parent or carer in a location that is shaping their aspirations. The young person's aspiration for the future is written under their feet. Under their parent or carer's feet is the aspiration they had at the young person’s age. The older person is looking back to their past and the young person is looking to a future they imagine. The photographs help us to talk about all of our pasts and futures. We think of what shaped us, our families, our schools, the opportunities we had, or didn’t have. They encourage us to think about young people’s futures and what we could change.

Mexborough is on the River Don and there is plenty of opportunity to make this a day out and to gather visual information via drawing, painting photography or writing in the surrounding area.
