Young people at heart of two fascinating exhibitions at Pyramid

Young people from across Warrington have inspired and created two fascinating exhibitions currently on display at Pyramid arts centre.

Us and Them and Way Back When started as a Heritage Lottery-funded history project inspired by the building on Museum Street currently occupied by the Relationships Centre.

This detailed exhibition was created by young people who use the centre; they researched previous inhabitants of the building, which dates back to 1877, as well as some of the neighbouring addresses.

The group explored the lives and experiences of Warrington’s teenagers over the past 130 years, comparing the support systems of the past with those available today.

Future Forecast features striking artwork produced by students on the UAL Extended Diploma class at Carmel College in St Helens.

The exhibits on display explore the students’ interpretation of ‘the future’ through a variety of art specialisms including photography, textiles, animation and graphics.

One student’s work documents personal stories which illustrate the contrast between rich and poor, and the theme of homelessness.

Another explores over-population through the depiction of a fictional city of the future while a third explores the evolution of the English language.

Both exhibitions run until Saturday 4 March.
