My Severn exhibition on Diglis Island
How does your perspective change when you slow down and look again?
This spring, we ran a series of mindful photography courses in collaboration with Look Again, called My Severn. The courses provided participants with the opportunity to slow down, connect with nature, and see the River Severn and its wildlife through a new lens.
Come and visit an exhibition of this photography on display at Diglis Island. We invite you to take a moment to appreciate the river from a new perspective, and explore this stunning collection of photographs in a unique location.
The photography exhibition is on display inside the Victorian lock gate workshop. This historic building was a key site for the manufacturing of lock gates along the River Severn. After two years of refurbishment, the workshop is now a project space for Unlocking the Severn, but still contains lots of Victorian lock gate machinery. We couldn’t think of a better place to represent the importance and heritage of our river.
You do not need to book to attend this exhibition. Just come along during this open session.
Head to the island lock gates just off Diglis Dock Road, where a team member will be there to greet you and welcome you onto Diglis Island. You are free then to explore the exhibition within the workshop. Staff and volunteers will also be present if you wish to ask any questions about the exhibition or Unlocking the Severn.
There are toilet facilities on the island.
We are unable to provide refreshments, so please bring your own should you require them.
