Severn Arts’ Young Voices New Visions exhibition is returning to Worcester Cathedral on Sunday 22 May. This year the artwork presented is responding to and celebrating the theme ‘life’. 

Young Voices New Visions is an annual exhibition showcasing the artistic talent of young people from across Worcestershire. This year over 50 Worcestershire schools, individuals and community groups are taking part.

The artwork presented spans a range of media including 3D artworks, photography and paintings skillfully curated by Richard Webb working with Steven Thomas and newly appointed exhibition assistant Dimitra Maravelaki. 

Dimitra Maravelaki, Exhibition Assistant said: “I strongly embrace the vision of Severn Arts about bringing young people closer to the arts and am looking forward to contributing to their work from the position of Exhibition Assistant. I can’t wait to meet and work with their great team of eminent curators and rise to the challenge of realising this year’s exhibition!” 

Elaine Knight, Arts Director, Severn Arts said: “The response from schools and young artists to this year’s exhibition has been fantastic and we have a wonderful selection of artwork to display. We’re delighted to be able to offer an exhibitions assistant role again this year as supporting creative practitioners early in their careers is an important part of what we do. I’m looking forward to hearing about Dimitra’s experience - it’s a tricky job curating such a varied mix of artwork and making the most of the beautiful setting.” 

Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “It’s wonderful to be able to showcase the creative artwork that the county’s young people have worked hard to create. Worcester Cathedral is a fantastic venue to showcase the hard work of the county’s newest artists. I’d like to thank Severn Arts for working with us to bring this exhibition, very appropriately, given the theme of this year’s event to life.” 

The exhibition, organised by Severn Arts and funded by Worcestershire County Council, takes place from Sunday 22 May to Sunday 26 June in the cloisters of Worcester Cathedral. The exhibition will be open to visitors during normal Cathedral visiting hours, Monday - Saturday 10am - 5pm (last entry 4.30pm) and Sundays 1pm - 3pm (last entry 2.30pm). Admission is free.
