A Movement in the Dark

24 June -  25 July 2010

CETL(NI): The Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in the Creative and Performing Arts at Queen's was set up in October 2005.  An interdisciplinary arts programme funded by the Department of Employment and Learning, it brings together innovative and inspirational teaching and learning approaches from across the creative and performing arts spectrum and beyond and over the past five years has developed an eclectic range of events, performances and workshops involving students in a broad portfolio of interdisciplinary projects working with local and international artists and performers collaboratively and creatively.

A music student working on the first very CETL project, Neil Harrison began to photograph the work of the CETL and has continued to do so throughout the life of the project.  He has recently launched his professional photographic company Neil Harrison Photography.

This is his story and the story of a project which has touched the lives of hundreds of students, which has challenged conventional thinking and which, above all, has been an adventure.  Doctors dancing, balloon launches, performances in libraries, gaols and old police stations, blindfolded audiences and other oddities and innovations have all been part of this journey.   And every step of the way Neil has been there with his camera.
