Open Eye Gallery & The Brindley Theatre, Halton

As and When, an exhibition of original photography, is launching this summer in The Brindley Theatre in Halton. It is the first exhibition in a series of similar shows around the region, as part of a wider project called Culture Shifts.

The show reflects on the ideas and identities of two distinct groups of Halton residents, looking at how we build a sense of community and what we mean by health and wellbeing.

The photographs on show are an honest look at the daily lives of two community groups, the Women of Windmill Hill and Widnes Vikings Golden Generation group. As and When, launching 1 July, shows how two communities living either side of the iconic Runcorn Bridge are brought together through shared perspectives on social mobility, local visibility, health and wellbeing.

Some of the ideas behind As and When are based on the World Health Organisation’s 1948 definition of ‘health’ as ‘a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’. The exhibition looks at how a sense of belonging is a crucial foundation to healthy, happy people. It is the first exhibition in a series of similar shows around the region, as part of a wider project called Culture Shifts.

The public launch will take place on Saturday 1 July, 10am-3pm at The Brindley Theatre. Attendance is free. For more information please contact liz@openeye.org.uk
