Past Belfast Exchange Gallery Exhibition

The City as Light & Growing up in Unity

Various - 20 September to 20 September 2011

The City as Light is a photographic and short film project created by the young people of the New Lodge and in collaboration with artist Ursula Burke. The theme of identity is explored from the participants unique perspective, growing up in inner city Belfast.
The work created offers an interesting opportunity to view images created by young who attempt to represent themselves.

Growing Up In Unity is a digital arts project chosen, designed and produced by young people from Carrickhill in partnership with artists Duncan Ross and Michelle Nolan. For this exhibition the young people created a website which hosts a variety of new media content reflecting the participant's experience of life in the area. It includes video portraits, interviews with local residents, an interactive map of Carrickhill and a collection of local jokes, stories and anecdotes.

New Lodge Arts would like to thank Belfast Exposed Photography for kindly hosting this exhibition and the young people who participated.
