Opening of the Fresh Perspectives exhibition at the Lady Lever Art Gallery
April 2019 will see the return of the biennial schools exhibition Fresh Perspectives: Art from Wirral schools
at the Lady Lever Art Gallery
. Fresh Perspectives is a fantastic opportunity for schools to nurture and promote the talents of their students, for young people to engage with arts and culture outside of the classroom environment and to support those with an interest in further education in the arts, offering them an insight into creative careers. This will be the fourth occasion that the exhibition has taken place but for the first time schools will have the opportunity to apply to have their students GCSE and A Level work included.
Artwork in previous exhibitions has included a range of mediums including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, textiles and digital images displayed on screen. We encourage all schools to apply and are interested in work from all creative subjects.

This year we would like to see the schools and students take ownership of Fresh Perspectives through supporting and leading on events during the exhibition. This can be anything from giving talks about their work to a peer group, creative workshops delivered to the public, or a music or dance performance in the main hall of the Gallery, and we welcome other ideas that teachers might have.
The application deadline is 27 April 2018
Please email our education team for further information at: firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form and guidelines.
