The Creative Initiative of The Foxton Centre
What do you see?
The Foxton Centre’s community participatory photography competition and exhibition using only disposable cameras with the aim of connecting the participant and viewer through witnessing the daily lives, loves, challenges, and passions of Preston people to get closer to truly understanding their lives – and perhaps be moved to bring about a closer community.
The current exhibition, curated by The Foxton Centre service users, is on display at The Harris Museum and Art Gallery until 19th Feb 2017. Previous exhibitions of selected photographs have taken place at: Dice & Donuts, 6 Butler Street, Preston, 15 June – 11 July The Foxton Centre, 18 July – 15 August The Foxton Festival, 6 August.
The Harris Open is a fresh and vibrant annual exhibition that gives the people of Preston a chance to shine! Artists from all backgrounds and all levels of experience, including professional, are invited to submit one or two of their most recent works to go on display, with children welcome to take part too.
The winning photo from the Preston, Our City, Your City competition and exhibition – won by Stephen Carter – was submitted to The Harris as 7.5ft x 5ft print and was selected to be part of the Harris Open exhibition where over 400 artworks are on display.
