The Britishness Project

Lewis Gardens
Colchester, United Kingdom

Firstsite, Colchester, is delighted to present The Britishness Project, a groundbreaking exhibition that investigates notions of Britishness through art making.


The show, which was initiated by the gallery, is the result of a collaboration between Essex schoolchildren and eight professional artists, each of whom undertook residencies in schools and education organisations in Colchester, Harlow and Harwich between September and December 2017.


By inviting young people – the pupils' ages range from eight to seventeen – the exhibition aims to generate wide-ranging conversations about the shifting social, geographic and political identity of Britain, revealing issues that affect young people, especially in the context of the 2016 European Referendum.


The assembled works include collage, stop-motion animation, sculpture and photography, and engage with ideas of identity, landscape, sub-culture, democracy and political voice.
