First Art photography project

Dacrylate has been chosen to represent industry in a photography project commissioned by First Art to map the people and places of Ashfield, Mansfield, Bolsover and North East Derbyshire.  Only two companies were selected to be photographed by David Severn to create a series of images celebrating people and places.

David Severn is a social documentary and fine art photographer, his work is how individuals and communities interact with, or are affected by, their environment. He is particularly interested in working class culture and their associated places both currently and historically.

David spent a morning at Dacrylate photographing the production process and talking to long-serving employees about their history with Dacrylate.  Images will first be used for public exhibition in a series of light boxes displayed in Mansfield Market Square, and then to illustrate and publicise the First Art Programme in print and online.

First ArtFirst Art began in January 2015 and is a new collection of four cultural and community organisations working within the former coalfields of North East Derbyshire and North East Nottinghamshire.  Their aim is to bring together communities with great art, exploring the regions distinctive landscape and stories, resulting in an inspiring programme of creative events within reach to everyone in the area.

The partnership between includes the Prince’s Trust, City Arts, Junction Arts and Creswell Heritage Trust, and support by the Arts Council through its Creative People and Places fund. For more information about First Art and the up and coming events visit http://firstart.org.uk/.
