Oasis Academy Brightstowe take part in railway photography project

Posted by Stephanie Broad | June 03, 2016 | School life

A Bristol railway station is set to be transformed into an art gallery thanks to talented youngsters at Oasis Academy Brightstowe.

Five pupils at the school in Shirehampton, Bristol have been selected to take part in a photography project run by Severnside Community Rail Partnership and Arts Council England.

The group – one year eight student and four year nine students are travelling on the local railway and visiting stations including Temple Meads, Montpelier and Severn Beach, taking photographs along the way. 

The best images will then be framed and put on display at Shirehampton train station this month. 

Rhian Iredale, head of art at Oasis Academy Brightstowe, said: “This is a wonderful project – not only does it bring our students’ art out into the community, but it will also serve to brighten up one of our local railway stations.

“The students are being encouraged to think about different aspects of the railway in their photography, such as people at work and local wildlife, so I am really looking forward to seeing what they produce.”
