Stories in Stone has been a partnership in which I have worked with both Wolverhampton Museums and Art Galleries and Telford Culture Zone. Students from two secondary schools in Telford, Ercall Wood Technology College and Madeley Academy, have been looking at the buildings in the neighbourhood of their schools and responding to them.
The project has resulted in a short film which was shown along with an exhibition of art work created by the schools. Stories in Stone is also part of a larger project, Engaging Places, which is organised nationally by CABE (the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment). The work I have done is part of the national exhibition which ran at Wolverhampton Art Gallery during July 2010 in tandem with a London exhibition in Greenwich.
In July 2010 I learnt that my Stories in Stone project with Madeley Academy had won first prize nationally among the CABE Engaging places projects.
