The Voices and Visions Exhibition will be returning to the Cathedral once again to celebrate the creativity of children and young people in Worcestershire.

Now in its 19th year, Voices and Visions has become a yearly fixture in the school calendar and brings together 45 schools in an exhibition that demonstrates the wealth of talent that can be found in the County.

 

This year schools have been working on the theme of 'Acts of Kindness', acknowledging all the good deeds people have done, no matter how big or small.

 

For the first time this year, Meadow Arts have been contributing to Voices and Visions by placing Creative Practitioners in four local schools. Fort Royal Community Primary School, Blackwell First School, Regency High School and Stanley Road Primary School have been working with Sarah Edwards, Mark Riley and Sarah Fereday to create new art work specifically for the exhibition.

 

Councillor Lucy Hodgson said: "Voices and Visions is a wonderful opportunity for children and young people to showcase their art work in the beautiful surroundings of the Cathedral.    The whole of the Voices and Visions programme is a key part of our Children's and Young People's Plan, helping them to fulfil their potential, and giving them the opportunity to live healthy, happy and fun filled lives."

 

Steve Wilson from Meadow Arts added: "Meadow Arts is delighted to be part of Voices and Visions. We are very excited to see the work of our Creative Practitioners and their collaboration with Worcestershire schools on display in such an iconic venue."

 

The Exhibition runs from May19 to June 17 in the Cloisters at Worcester Cathedral during normal opening hours.
