Work by young people created through Gillian Dickinson Project
In 2013 National Glass Centre was awarded a grant from the Gillian Dickinson Trust to engage young people with the arts. We worked in partnership with Southwick Neighbourhood Youth Project, Education and Services for People with Autism, Herrington Burn YMCA, Springwell Dene, Portland and Barbara Priestman Academies to deliver a 20 week outreach project to over 130 young people resulting in this exhibition of work. All the ideas, themes and content has been created by the young people with support from professional glass artists Sue Woolhouse, Zoe Garner, Joanne Mitchell and Catherine Forsyth. The exhibition will tour to NGCA in December 2014.
