Bringing the arts to the community of Romney Marsh is a key remit of JAM on the Marsh. As such we have worked with primary schools across the Marsh for many years, offering singing courses and giving children performance opportunities in the festival. We have also run photographic courses at the Marsh Academy and the Romney Resource Centre, leading to exhibitions for their students.
JAM has commissioned many photography exhibitions, from some very established photographers, and have also enabled first shows for some less experienced, emerging photographers. For the last year we have collaborated with the Marsh Academy Leisure Centre, revisiting these previous shows, bringing a Retrospective Series to the Centre’s foyer.
For this Retrospective Series exhibition covering the length of the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, we bring shots from five photographers who have thrilled us over the years.
