Growing Lives launches exhibition at International Photography Festival

Out of the Box is part of a three year arts programme working with people at Derventio's Growing Lives project. After four months of project delivery, we are now excited to be exhibiting the results at various locations across Derbyshire.

People shared their personal stories and experiences to be condensed, with the help of artist Jan Flamank, into haiku-style poems. The poems were printed on translucent paper and tucked away inside small boxes. The boxes are illustrated by photographs and found images that are meaningful to each person. Photographer Jon Legge took some photographs and supported people to take their own.

The exhibition aims to give a glimpse into real lives and to illuminate the complexities many of us live with. We are proud to be exhibiting at a number of venues in Derbyshire this spring and summer.
