Artworks created by the children and young people as a part of the Children and Water section of the project will be exhibited at The ICCA Nottingham, 99 Hucknall Road, NG5 1QZ
Participants were encouraged to discover and research their local architectural and cultural heritage related to water, through accessing the materials available as well as in the school library or the Internet to initiate a debate on the need for heritage conservation. Such discussions encouraged the young generation in wanting to know more about their own roots, helping them understand their relation to their immediate neighbourhoods, regions, countries, etc.
Artcore worked with selected schools/youth groups from Feb 2014: delivering structured creative sessions through talks, presentations, demonstrations, activities for idea generation.
We delivered workshops in schools from both Nottingham and Derby to create awareness and understanding of the importance of water. A list of the schools can be seen below.
– Derby Moor (Derby) – Sycamore Academy (Nottingham)
– City of Derby (Derby) – Seeley Primary (Nottingham)
– Village Primary (Derby)
– NCS (Derby)
The artworks created, formed part of a larger exhibition at Deda on the 27th September 2014. There is a website www.thewebofwater.com which provides further details for the project.
This exhibition will be displayed from 20th Oct 2014 – 16th Jan 2015 at The ICCA Nottingham
