Jumping Puddles portraits

There are currently no updates available for this tour.

The exhibition was shown at the following venues throughout February and March 2015:

Sanctuary Artspace – Gateshead

Arts Centre Washington
Everyman, Liverpool
ARC Stockton Arts Centre
Live Theatre Newcastle

We were thrilled to commission international photo journalist Phyllis Christopher to work with some of the young women who took part in the Jumping Puddles project on a series of portrait photographs.

As this project progressed it became more of a collaboration and many of the photographs were taken by the young women of each other. The resulting exhibition forms a series of powerful portraits documenting young women from marginalised communities in the North East of England and Liverpool in the early 21st Century.

The young women's groups who worked with Phyllis on this series of photographs were:

  • Gateshead Young Women's Outreach Project
  • Linhope Pupil Referral Unit
  • Older Girls at West End Women & Girls Centre
  • Excelsior School
  • Young Person's Opportunities Project, Liverpool
  • Tyneside Young Lesbian Project
  • Newcastle College
