Dave Sedgwick (designer & frequent guest lecturer at Shillington College MCR) and Tim Denton (Maker) have come together to create an exhibition of work which asks the question, 'What is the secret to a long and happy life?'. Dave and Tim have collaborated with Chorlton Good Neighbours, a collective of older people who meet a few times a week for coffee mornings, exercise classes and social gatherings.
The question was put to this group and these answers have formed the concept and creative for the exhibition. Dave will be designing a series of typographic rubber stamps based on the answers and Tim will be making a set of hand held wooden devices. We will then be asking people at the exhibition to make their own postcards using the stamps and send these out to those they feel may benefit from the pearls of wisdom imparted to us by the older generation.
Portraits of the wise worded ones will be shown as part of the exhibition and the aim is to distribute the secrets of longevity from an older group of Mancunians to the next generation.
The exhibiton starts this Thursday (15th August – invite only) at Bench Gallery & lasts until the 28th. Also on show, is work from other Shillo MCR friends: Matt Booth, John Owens & Daren Newman.
