New College Stamford’s talented Art and Design students have been raising awareness of food waste in their latest exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre this week. The annual exhibition is part of ‘The One World Week’ with this year’s theme ‘LIVING DIFFERENTLY: Breaking chains – making change!
The array of students work reflected the need to make changes in our lifestyles to secure a fairer, more satisfying, resourceful life for us all to protect the planet for future generations.
The exhibition showcased a range of artwork that students have been refining throughout their course at New College Stamford including paintings, sculptures, etchings and graphics. Each responding to how they would choose to ‘LIVE DIFFERENTLY’ and make a change together. Students touched on subjects such as poverty, world hunger and consumerism.
Open to the public, the event attracted a large number of local visitors and art enthusiasts, giving Art and Design students the opportunity to gain honest feedback from the public.
Tom Coulthard, Lecturer of Art and Design said, “the students have an excellent reputation for putting on captivating exhibitions, and as such they are always well attended. This gives students a excellent opportunity to gain feedback towards the development of their creative portfolios.”
