09 May 2014

Currently on display in Southampton City Art Gallery is an exciting collection of recent work by Cohort 7 at the Wessex Dance Academy, Winchester and artwork created in workshop sessions by Young Carers groups from across Hampshire which includes KIDS Fareham and Gosport Young Carers group. 

The Young Carers group joined workshop sessions held by Sue & Sue Art Workshops. 

Organisers, Sue Fox and Sue Kenneally said, "we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to display the young peoples' work in such a prestigious gallery space and for them to have a platform to share their powerful and thought provoking artwork with a wider audience. We run unique and inspiring contemporary art and design workshops, not only with mainstream groups but also with many disadvantaged and hard to reach groups - our ethos is always to try and make a difference and to give young people a voice."

The "Making a Difference" collection is currently on display at the Southampton City Art Gallery until Saturday 7 June 2014.
