Exhibition: The Nature of Nests
Over a period of six weeks young people from Amble Youth Group explored the theme of nests. It is a universal theme, which lends itself to ideas about home and a sense of place. The nests project is part of the Bord Waalk Sculpture trail community engagement programme.
The opening event, an exhibition at Dry Water Arts Centre was held on 15 February. It was a joyous celebration of the creative capabilities of the young people and they are looking forward to developing the project.
