Tania March, Artist in Residence – Worcester Cathedral 2018

I am pleased to announce that, following my recent solo exhibition Time Contained at Worcester Cathedral in March 2017, I have been appointed Artist in Residence at the Cathedral beginning in 2018.

I will spend 12 months focusing on portraiture, and creating paintings and that are inspired by the people with whom I interact in daily life.

My residency at the Cathedral will involve a major solo exhibition of portrait paintings in 2019. I will also be holding various creative workshops that members of the public and students will be invited to attend.

I am an artist and portrait painter, as well as a sessional lecturer on the MA Creative Media course at the University of Worcester. I obtained a Distinction in MA Creative Digital Media at the University of Worcester in 2016, after graduating with a First Class BA Honours degree in Fine Art Practice in 2013, winning two awards – The Windsor and Newton Prize for Best Painting and the Elmley Foundation Fine Art Award.

Malvern Theatres Exhibition

Two photographers – both Fellows of the Royal Photographic Society – with quite different styles and creative approaches will be exhibiting their work at Malvern Theatres from January 2 to January 30 2018.

David James revisits considerations of the aesthetic, playfully constructing images on themes based on the Renaissance theories of composition, colour and location. Often, a small figure forms a pivotal point in the image but the significance of the moment is ambiguous. Having studied at the University of Reading and the Slade School of University College London, David James was an art director and designer in ITV for 30 years before lecturing in higher education. He is currently course leader for the Masters in Creative Media at the University of Worcester.

Michael Hallett’s Inconsequential Images explore the critical questions surrounding identity, affluence, lifestyle, excesses, and the cult of the individual. The photographs do not relate to particular people but are images that collectively convey a strong narrative showing people predominantly in an urban, social landscape. As a teacher, photographer and internationally published photo historian, Michael Hallett has exhibited his work nationally over a number of years. He is an Associate Academic at the University of Worcester.

HELPING A LEOPARD TO CHANGE ITS SPOTS: HOW TO REHABILITATE OFFENDERS

LECTURE BY PROFESSOR ERICA BOWEN, UNIVERSITY OF WORCESTER

Date: 21 Nov 4pm for 4.15pm start, close at 5.30pm

Admission: FREE

Location: Herefordshire & Ludlow College, Hereford Campus, Folly Lane, Hereford, HR1 1LS

The issue of whether offenders can be successfully rehabilitated as part of criminal justice sentencing policy is controversial. The tension between punishment and rehabilitation as aims and outcomes of penal policy are ongoing, and the balance between these two aspects shifts depending on the political climate.

This public lecture will provide an overview of how penal policy concerning the rehabilitation of offenders has fluctuated over time, the factors that have influenced it, and how scientific evidence has, or has not, contributed to this debate.

We will take a closer look at current perspectives on working with offenders to prevent future reoffending, and what is known about the effectiveness of these approaches.

RSVP by 14 November via studentHUB@hlcollege.ac.uk or 01432 365 431

Location: Infirmary Museum, City campus

“My brother, Shiva, and I came into the world in the late afternoon of the twentieth of September in the year of grace 1954. We took our first breaths in the thick air of Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia.

Bound by birth, we were driven apart by bitter betrayal. No surgeon can heal the wound that divides two brothers. Where silk and steel fail, story must succeed.

To begin at the beginning…”
