‘I come to meet other people, different people that have similar interests.’
‘It feels privileged to get to be in the galleries after hours. It’s also nice for me to be doing something creative with other people as normally everything I do is self – led.’
‘I’ve done a lot of volunteering but Circuit is one of the places where I’ve felt more valued and welcomed. It’s GREAT getting food and snacks. I really enjoy taking part in Kettle’s Yard Lates and getting involved in events.’
‘I’m so chuffed by this project – I can’t believe my work is in the galleries next to Louise Bourgeois, and we mixed it, recorded it, edited it.’

Check out this opportunity for photographers aged 18-25: Photoworks are partnering with English Heritage to offer an exciting new commissioning opportunity for photographers aged between 18 and 25. Four successfully commissioned artists will be invited to select an English Heritage site to use as a creative springboard. Using that site, artists will then create a new body of photographic work exploring alternative narratives and new voices of England, drawing out ideas around identity and its relationship to ‘Englishness’. They are interested in presenting a diversity of perspectives on heritage, and the notion of heritage sites as places of significance and meaning, where past and present can interact. A fee of £2,400 (inc VAT) is available for each artist and the residency will take place from March to May 2021, including research, development, site visits, contact time with a mentor, and production of the artwork. https://photoworks.org.uk/opportunities/artist-commissioning-opportunity-photoworks-x-english-heritage/

The next postcard from our virtual visits to places we can't currently visit is from @freyapryceart Freya says of the process: 'Because the satellite image was so sunny and bright, I wanted to take the picture to the extreme to exaggerate how it was how I wanted it to be. I then added my own photographs I had taken at the location to show the elements that made me love it and that weren’t visible from the satellite image.' Image description: A landscape image by water where the colours have been altered to look unusual, creating a light blue mass of water, orange sands, black clouds and a lime green hill in the background. Over the top of the image are three greyscale images that appear to show the texture of sand and long grasses. White text is overlaid over the main image that reads: 'Walking alongside the sea, jut outside of its grasp, for miles and miles. It hits you so suddenly, the openness, the freedom.'
