Ancient Sunlight

Stories from the Oil Age

In May 2014 we invited 6 artists; Catherine Cartwright and Ama Bolton, David Lane, Sally Flint, Amy Shelton, and Shiona Morton to lead the creation of a book about the Oil Age with Exeter’s young people.

From September 2014 they led workshops in Stoke Hill School, West Exe, Exeter College, Isca, St James, St Lukes, Kenn Primary and Exeter Library. The Artists and Young People wrote, drew, painted, printed, built, and performed their way to what we think is an extraordinary book.

Together they created The Books of Love, Leadership, Technology, Food, and Justice.
