Terrington Arts

A community arts charity

Millennium Project

Terrington Arts was successful in gaining a grant from Yorkshire Arts through the New Millennium Experience company to make a record of the village in the year 2000. Our brief was to involve professional artists in handing on their skills so that we can produce a CD-ROM, a book and a final exhibition.

We began by holding 2 full day workshops for around 20 people with a professional photographer. The group then agreed what should be photographed during the year, and made plans to repeat the exercise carried out by Rev. James Wimbush in 1933 when he took photographs of everyone in the Parish outside their own house. The photographs were mostly taken on one weekend in May 1999 when 30 people took photographs in pairs and recorded information about residents.
