The Back to Black and White Project

Students stage a fascinating exhibition of Swindon’s past and present!

An exhibition featuring work by young people, alongside images from Swindon photographer Albert Beaney taken over 50 years ago will open on Friday 10 February at the Swindon Museum & Art Gallery.

Back To Black And White Project in Swindon

When: Friday 10 February - Saturday 14 April 2012

Where: Swindon Museum & Art Gallery, Bath Road

Inspired by Beaney’s collection of 40,000 photographs of Swindon residents from the 1940s to the 1970s, today’s students have curated the exhibition, revealing interesting insights of then and now.

Back To Black And White Project SwindonAs well as taking photographs of people in Swindon today, they tracked down some of those who were photographed by Beaney, interviewed them and have included their discoveries in the exhibition.

The Back to Black and White project - a partnership between Culture Swindon and Swindon Youth Forum - is supported by a £25,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF) Young Roots programme. The Youth Forum members, all aged between 11 and 16 years old, hope the project will create better relationships between younger and older members of the community.
