Students ready to reveal Reading Abbey transformation

Photography students from Reading College are embarking on a year-long project with Reading Museum; Reading Abbey Revealed.

Over the next year, Reading Museum is transforming Reading's iconic Abbey Quarter and Reading College photography students have secured work experience to assist with the project.

Jess Freeland, Community Engagement Officer for the Reading Abbey Revealed project, met with the photography students to launch their part in the programme by briefing them on their role and outlining the requirements. 

The Level 3 photography students have been tasked with visually documenting the development of the project over the next year and their work will be posted on social media to keep the community up to date with the project's progress.

Peter Savage, Photography and Digital Imaging Lecturer, said: "It is wonderful for our students to have such an exciting work experience placement and they are very excited that the wider community will be able to engage in their images. We are looking forward to working closely with Reading Museum and we are keen to forge a relationship between the project and the public through our art."
