The English and Art teams join together annually to explore greek myths. Their outcomes are performance based and their creations serve as props, masks or scenery. This year their artworks were blown up to a huge scale on screen to provide a moving background to their drama piece.
Students from Years 10 -12 have spent two weeks at the Centre of Possible Studies with Artist Collective members from ‘Ultra-Red’ looking at the city, its history, the plans for its future and the impact… Each study is developed by the students and is centred around life for young people in the city.
As a response to their findings on regeneration, research and city development, the students made a film, this was shown in exhibition at the centre of possible studies tonight.
