The exhibition Postcards from Canvey Island is a showcase of work created during Vanessa Rolf’s residency at Cornelius Vermuyden School, Essex. The exhibition will include maps and drawings by students from the four Canvey Island schools involved in the project. “I hope to get a chance to use the drawing sheets again in the future – the kids loved working on them“.

For more information about the project visit Postcards from Canvey Island or the Canvey Island Archive.
