Pan-island student multi-media exhibition

A joint Jersey/Guernsey photographic and video exhibition from age 16+ students, is opening at the Jersey Arts Centre tonight.

The exhibition is the culmination of a competition and workshops organised as part of the Guernsey Photographic Festival. The exhibition is the best lens-based work from over a hundred students and explores how universal themes manifest themselves locally in different ways across island identity and culture.

Festival education coordinator Jersey, Martin Toft, "The idea of the scheme was to get students working together and also working with international photographers. We ran some workshops in Jersey in the summer for around 125 students and then about 75 went over to the Guernsey Photography festival where they all worked together in three days of workshops. The theme of the work is, 'Faith, Family and Community' and the best of it is being exhibited at the Arts Centre."

The lens-based work includes photographs and videos. The aim of the Guernsey Photography Festival is to help children and adults understand how important art and culture are, not only for self-development  but also for the development of our own society.

The exhibition has already been on in Guernsey and now opens in Jersey on Monday 2nd February at 5.30pm in the Berni Gallery, Jersey Arts Centre. It will be opened by Minister of Education and Culture, Deputy Rod Bryans and the Jersey winner of the competition will be announced on the night.

Participating Jersey schools are: Hautlieu, Highlands College, JCG and De La Salle College.

The activity was organised by the Guernsey Photographic Festival in collaboration with Archisle: Jersey Contemporary Photography Program with the support of Mourant Ozannes, Raven Russia, Guernsey Arts Commission and Deutsche Bank. The exhibition is supported by the Christopher Lakeman Arts Foundation and Spectrum Photographic.

The exhibition runs until the 28th February in the Berni Gallery.
