Sherwood Photostory now on display at Trinity

Community activists have been captured on camera for the Sherwood Vision Photostory.







Stephen Jenny


During the summer of 2010, Town & Country Foundation invited photographer Pat Pope and researcher Joelle Laws to document various initiatives taking place in Sherwood.

The results can now been seen at a photographic exhibition at the Trinity Theatre, Tunbridge Wells. It depicts some of the individuals who have been highlighted by others in their communities as being key community activists. The exhibition recognises their energy and efforts and celebrates community spirit in all its forms.

The project is part of the Sherwood Vision a 10-year community-driven renewal programme. Find out more about the Sherwood Vision.

The exhibition is on at Trinity’s Foundation Gallery, Church Road, Tunbridge Wells, until Sunday January 9, 2011. It is open daily 10am - 8pm and one hour before performances. Admission is free and everyone is welcome. A selection of photos appears on this page - why not pop along to the Trinity to see the rest?

Pictured here are Cerith White, Dawn Stanford, Edna Edwards, Keith Marden, Stephen Rosemond and Jenny Bays.
