AN EXHIBITION, showing art work by young people in Hampshire, is being shown in Winchester.

The Winchester Discovery Centre is hosting Horizon 20:20: In the Making, a collection of art produced by young people from Hampshire, running from September 18 to November 3.

The collection of works on display, at City Space in the Discovery Centre, has been produced by young people through the Horizon 20:20 programme and captures the wide range of skills, techniques and art forms they have used to express themselves and their ideas.

The artworks include examples of photography, glass art, fashion, design, graffiti, animation, filmmaking, silk print and screen printing.

The Horizon 20:20 programme, which is run by Hampshire Cultural Trust, has been developed over a period of five years both to increase access to and promote engagement in the arts for young people in non-mainstream education.

Professional artists run regular sessions in seven Education Centres in Hampshire using arts and culture as a tool to increase confidence, improve motivation to learn, inspire positive behaviour and give young people the chance to develop empathy and teamwork.

Cultural Engagement Coordinator at Hampshire Cultural Trust, Cat Cooke, said: “Working with teachers and artists supporting young people and seeing the effect it has on them is incredible.

“Creativity is such a powerful tool, which can give often anxious, disengaged young people a pathway to build confidence, smile and want to come back into a classroom.”
