Stepping Out of The Box

September 10th, 2019

‘During the Summer term, students from Parkside Academy worked alongside associate artists as part of Arts Education company, Changing Relations – Stepping Out of The Box project.


This new exhibition features work by professional artists and young people from 4 different Secondary Schools in County Durham. The work aims; to question today’s relevance of traditional masculine and feminine labels and the impact of trying to fit into the ‘boxes’, examining the messages we recognise, receive and share – creating a dialogue around gender roles and aspirations.’
