Connecting Culture Workshop

Connecting Culture Workshop

On Friday 19th November, students at Oasis Lord's Hill were fortunate enough to take part in a workshop led by artist Faye Phillips who is part of the Connecting Culture programme.

Connecting Culture, is a ground-breaking new project, led by University of Southampton with a large consortium of cultural organisations and child-focused services, that explores the question of how Southampton’s thriving Cultural Quarter can enrich the lives of children and young people as a future creative hub.

Our Year 10 Fine Art & Photography students worked hard on the project and will now be eligible for a Discover Arts Award.

The group were given a chance to express how Southampton’s cultural quarter has impacted on them and their development. This was their opportunity to help make the case for future improvements in the arts in Southampton for other young people. Their feedback will now help shape a children and young people’s arts and cultural manifesto for Southampton.
