WISBECH: Arts project for the young

Share this article

An exciting multimedia project aimed at young people aged 13-19 years ‘Click! Wisbech Captured’ will launch in January at Wisbech Library.

The project will explore the past, document the present and encourage young people to create a new archive which will culminate in an online exhibition for future generations to enjoy.

ADeC’s Project Manager Zoe Davidson who is delivering the project said: “Click! Wisbech Captured will give young people the chance to lead the project, working alongside a professional photographer and sound artist, while learning new media skills and exploring their own heritage. Working with old and new cameras young people will take photographs of Wisbech through their eyes; they will also produce an audio recording that represents living in Wisbech. I can’t wait to see what they produce.”

This project is part of a season of cultural events happening in libraries entitled ‘Arts Alive in Libraries’. The initiative involves a range of events taking place in libraries throughout Fenland, ranging from comedy clubs to community TV projects.

The first session will take place at Wisbech Library on January 12 from 10am-1pm. To book a place on this project, sign up at Wisbech Library, or for more information contact Zoe Davidson zoe.davidson@adec.org.uk or 01353 611592.
