Conversations in Colour

Our Age UK Budding Friends, gathering each week at Studio 36, are busily and enthusiastically creating artwork for the Conversations in Colour exhibition to start at the Barnfield Theatre on 4th May.

As can be seen above, actual conversations within the group are turned into fabulous works of art created by all of the participants under the guidance of Veronica Gosling.

Further interest and enjoyment has been achieved through the involvement of Professor Michael Schillmeier of Exeter University’s Sociology & Philosophy department. He has been taking an ethnographic approach to help to understand and engage with the questions, issues and requirements of the Budding Friends’ everyday life.

Also happening and coming soon!
