An exhibition of words and images celebrating the railway and the Stroudwater canal has been launched at Gloucestershire’s Stroud and Stonehouse stations.
Stroud and Stonehouse station exhibitions are community led projects created by Creative Sustainability in partnership with Great Western Railway and ACoRP. Creating this exhibition was designed to build confidence and develop opportunities and skills by giving local people a voice, a chance to be creative and to show their work in public.
The images for the exhibitions at Stroud and Stonehouse were created by Stroud-based photographers Ruth Davey from Look Again and James Kriszyk, photography students from Stroud College and local photographers with poems and words written by pupils from local schools.
Stroud Station Hub have also launched displays about creating the station exhibitions and the Station Hub concept. Great Western Railway have kindly provided Stroud Station Adoption group, Creative Sustainability CIC, with a station room to develop the Station Hub. Creative Sustainability and the Access Bike team plan to develop a space that provides tourist information and destination experiences. To achieve this Creative Sustainability are working with Great Western Railway, ACoRP and Stroud Town Council. Creative Sustainability would like to thank Great Western Railway and ACoRP for this opportunity and for sponsoring the project. We look forward to producing further exhibitions and opportunities for local people at Stonehouse and Stroud stations.
