Working with Stockport College

Hello again- We have a talk to staff on Thursday from students on the BA photography course at Stockport College. We have been working in partnership with them as a result of a fantastic collaboration with Eleanor Mulhearn, who was on a HEFCE (Higher Education Funding Council for England) fellowship. So far our partnership has had several outputs:

-Eleanor has been investigating a group of lantern slides of extinct and endangered animals.

-Richard Aldred did a photodocumentary of the transformation of our old Animal 1 gallery into Living Worlds

-and each student from the final year of the course worked on their own response to the themes of Living Worlds. Students were given a very broad brief- it was their final year project after all! There was a fantastic exhibition at the Chinese Arts Centre here in Manchester a couple of weeks back that I was very proud to attend.
