A Tonne Of Feathers

A Tonne Of Feath­ers is a social action pub­lic art exhi­bi­tion bring­ing young peo­ple’s voic­es and con­cerns to life through dynam­ic artworks.

A Tonne Of Feathers is a social action public art exhibition bringing young people's voices and concerns to life through dynamic artworks.

Creative Youth Network, together with Culture Weston and North Somerset Council, bring you a public art exhibition that raises the voices of young people from across the South West of England, including those that live in Weston-super-Mare.

Since the start of 2021, emerging artists from the region have been delivering social action art workshops with communities in Southampton, Bristol and Weston-super-Mare to harness the voices of those who seldom get heard – young people.

In this week-long exhibition of visual arts, the pieces touch on subjects of equality, belonging, neurodivergence, and rights. Accumulating in a series of 7 artworks spread across the Italian Gardens with displays at Culture Weston’s Front Room, this showcase of social action artwork celebrates diversity and brings together generations.

Thanks to the funders – Arts Council England, Comic Relief and The Unity
