The Vision To Vision exhibition is about to be welcomed to the screen at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle. The ambitious project is brought to a close as two short films are presented, made by participants of the free arts project, with screenings on Monday 31st March, through until Sunday 3rd April.

Set to consider ideas of perception, Vision To Vision draws on our physical and emotional experience of time, creating questions on how we frame and manipulate reality through social media. A four-week collaboration with the Tyneside Cinema’s Artists-in-Residence Larry Achiampong and David Blandy lead to the films being developed, also challenging notions of the future. The films produced are based on two quotes ‘life is a series of relentless moments; there will always be the past, present and future’ and ‘is life better seen with my own two eyes or through a frame…?’

The Factory – Tyneside Cinema’s programme for young people to learn about moving image, and develop skills and creativity – drew together talented individuals aged between 14 and 19 to make more of their varying degrees of experience with the industry. Utilising various mediums including moving image, visual art, photography, sound and animation, the participants are able to develop as artists and work towards an arts award.

The exhibition of these short films is the culmination of a lot of hard work that has lead to a great creative outlet for these young artists.

The Vision To Vision exhibition is to screen at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle from Monday 31st March, through until Sunday 3rd April.
