“What’s It Worth?” was an inspiring exhibition of artwork at The Bureau of Exchange pop-up on Tuesday 16th June 2015. CAS Artist Deborah Skinner ran workshops for pupils from Icknield School over several weeks and the artwork produced was on exhibition at the ‘Bureau of Exchange’ on the last Tuesday. The exhibition provided a unique opportunity to understand and explore how ‘worth’ is understood in different contexts.
Deborah Skinner said: “During this project the young people and I will be working together to discover and create value, and beauty, working with materials that are considered to be worthless. The pupils will become artists, collectively integral to the creative process and be part of an evolving project.”
The exhibition was delivered as a Discover Arts Award project for special needs students at Icknield School which means they gained a nationally recognised arts qualification.
