Positive Light Projects Launch Party Invite - 30th October
Dear all Crowdfunder supporters!
Over the last 6 months we have been pretty busy here at Positive Light Projects! After the successful Crowdfunder campaign (thanks to all of you!) we started work renovating 184 -187 Sidwell Street, Exeter. We set to work installing mains electrical distribution and power outlets throughout the building, lighting and emergency lighting, building wide heating, a new fire detection system, plumbing works including a street level accessible toilet, and plenty of cleaning, painting & decorating.
Once the building was safe, warm and accessible to all we started our summer programme of activities and events - workshops, courses and classes working with a wide range of community groups and local organisations. We ran a participatory photography course in collaboration with Exeter Homeless Partnership, printmaking and analogue photography workshops with The Syrian Refugee and Migrant Workers community with support from St Sidwell Community Centre, multiple creative sessions with The Pelican Project who work with young people with disabilities, and much, much more. We have commissioned work by local artists and organisations. facilitated meaningful activity with Recovery Devon to the Resilient Women group, provided studio space to 6 local artists, hosted Exeter School of Art and Exeter College’s end of year art shows, and there was even a music video shot here! We have started a mentorship program, run evening classes and weekend courses, assembled a pop up photo studio and transformed our meeting room into a camera obscura and darkroom. And this is just the start!
To celebrate the work made through all these endeavours and the people who have been involved and supported our journey we are planning a large launch exhibition and party in the space that will showcase the results of all that we have been up to so far, and what we have planned for the future. Please come and see it all on the walls!
