For young people Creative Futures Meet Ryan I have been shooting a lot of portraits recently however I am very interested in architecture, the use of urban space and spatial practices. I also pretend I’m good on a BMX. Name: Ryan Convery-Moroney Age: 23 Art form: Photography Why did you apply for creative futures? The studio space, the time to think outside of my everyday context and the chance to make worthwhile connections and relationships. Creative futures offers a range of diverse and challenging opportunities which I hope will fulfil issues and ambitions I am currently facing within myself. Helping me grow within my personal and professional practice. Tell us about the work you are currently making My time at CYN will be spent documenting Pawsons, a thriving traditional, un-computerised, cash only local greengrocer based in Bishopston; which remains largely unchanged over the years despite the external pressures of modernisation and heavy competition. What topics would you like to explore and why? Alongside the visual aspects the shop itself I would also like to explore and unearth how the shifting of economic and financial systems is affecting businesses and consumers alike. What are you most excited to do on creative futures? I am most excited to be contributing to the potential development and understanding of young peoples perspective within the arts. As this is something I feel personally strong about having found my passion of photography through similar scenarios. To learn about and work alongside my fellow cohort in organising and delivering workshops in an environment where mistakes are welcomed and not neglected. Where do you see yourself at the end of the programme? Conquering the world. How can we help?
