Art

There’s a huge range of art at Trevs, with the college art collection being on display year round, termly exhibitions in the college bar and decorations for the college events.

There’s something art related for everyone, whether your interests are in photography, art exhibitions, painting, decoration making or textiles, and if your specific art interests fall outside of these areas then why  not set up a new, specialised art society?!

If you would like any more information on any of the art societies or events listed below, contact your Art Rep, Lydia Kingston.

Art Society

Presidents: Alex Kingdon (a.d.h.kingdon@durham.ac.uk)

Trevelyan Art Club is a chilled out society, for all artistic abilities and runs weekly sessions. They are an opportunity for you to come along and get creative, with all the materials you would need being provided! Generally there will be a theme or a material to focus on each session but others are completely free range and you can bring along whatever art you are currently working on. We will experiment with loads of different materials across the year, meet with external artists and make our own stash! This society is a fun and relaxed place to practise art together and socialise. Plus, we aim to organise trips to external art galleries or other places of interest/inspiration across the year!

Drama Society

Presidents: Ollie Kirkwood (oliver.kirkwood@durham.ac.uk)

A new society to rebirth the lost Hill College Theatre Company, staging at least two productions a year. Open to producers, actors, directors, technicians and more to develop licensed plays or new student-written material, and resurrect the Summer Shakespeare play.

Event Photography

President: Jessica Wang (pu.wang@durham.ac.uk)

The ‘Trevent Photographers’ record and share the important moments in the college calendar. Our aim is to be the highest quality source of photos for any Trevs event as well as to foster new talent by educating members in the art of event photography.

Photography

The photography society is a meeting place for all those interested in exploring the art of photography. The society organises fun trips and socials for members to try new areas of photography and also offers education in how to take better photos. Members are also encouraged to exhibit their work for display to the whole college. Both digital and analogue photography are practiced with members gaining access to the darkroom at nearby Grey College.
