Local photographers are being encouraged to take up their cameras and participate in the make-over of the Comberton Hill subway underpass in Kidderminster.

The make-over will be part of this summer’s Kidderminster Arts Festival (KAF) focusing on the theme of ‘Transformation’, organised by Wyre Forest District Council.

Funding has been received thanks to the Arts Council England, The Elmley Foundation, The Open for Business Award by Worcestershire County Council and The Xpressions Grant Scheme. The Big Print Shop will be sponsoring the initiative.

The subway will be transformed into a documentary of surrounding local architecture reflecting the regeneration plans set to unfold in Kidderminster.

Loz Samuels, Wyre Forest District Council’s Arts and Play Officer said:

“Comberton Hill has become a place of change over the last 5 years, with a range of subway art projects transforming it into a more welcoming space than it was previously. It has also inspired the Above Boards event which will happen again this year on the 21 and 22 August. I look forward to seeing everyone’s photos!”

Local photographers are asked to produce black and white images of Kidderminster’s architecture to create a striking collage throughout the subway.
