Our North

28 March - 30 March 2018

What does it mean to be Northern for young people today? A new 3-day exhibition launching at Open Eye Gallery presents new collaborative work created by young people, exploring their generation’s understanding of ‘The North’.

Our North is a project built around collaborative photography, fashion and heritage. Inspired by Open Eye Gallery’s 2017 exhibition North: Identity, Photography, Fashion, young people have explored why the North of England sits so prominently on the global map for fashion, music and visual culture.

Our North, made possible by national lottery players through newly released funding from Heritage Lottery Fund, is giving young people the opportunity to work alongside artists, producers, curators and researchers, looking at the visual and social history of their culture.

Participants have delved into Open Eye Gallery’s photographic archives, interviewed cultural and fashion sector professionals, met and interviewed local older residents about their fashion memories and undertaken several photo walks and self-directed fashion shoots with photographer Stephanie Wynne.

This launch event will run from 3-7, with a speech from Nigel de Noronha, a Heritage Lottery Fund committee member and Teaching Fellow in Sociology at the University of Warwick, specialising in social statistics, housing, inequality, social justice, race and migration.

Our North: An exhibition by Sefton Youth Voice and young people from Runcorn’s Power in Partnership programme. Open from 28-30 March. Supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.
