A collective of six UCLan photography students have created a do-it-yourself at home exhibition.Advertisement
The second-year students, known as Society’s Brew, decided to do something a bit different after realising Covid-19 restrictions meant they wouldn’t be able to host the physical exhibition they wanted.
Madison West from the group said: “Lockdown made a lot of us feel unmotivated, uninspired and most of all bored.
“With thoughts of others feeling like we did, we decided to apply something different to our exhibition. We came up with a DIY exhibition!
“Our audience purchase the pack – instead of tickets – and we post out a box filled with our work and instructions on how to ‘build’ our exhibition.
“It provides the audience with something to fill their time and they get some excellent prints and artist information along with it.”

Madison’s fellow collective members are Kierra Gray, Liz Roberts, Jodie Davies, Oli Mounsey and Max Boardman.
Some of the group have been living on campus during the pandemic, while others have stayed at home.
Madison said: “Planning and undergoing this exhibition has definitely brought the group closer together.
“We have been discussing and giving feedback on each others images as well as meeting online to consider how we wanted to publish the exhibition as a finished product.”
