Cornwall Creative Connections

posted on: 24 June 2022

Cultural Connections Cornwall, a collaborative residency at Mounts Bay Academy with year 10 students, in association with The Exchange and the National Portrait Gallery. Through a series of workshops [including a brilliant field trip], we explored cultural connections between Cornwall and the National Portrait Gallery collection.

In response, the students researched and selected portraits from the NPG collection as well as contributed to the labels. They also created new photographic portraits of people they considered significant in their community. These photographs are shown alongside the portraits from the National Portrait Gallery’s Collection and the series of portraits that I made specifically for the project.
