As part of Waterloo Festival 2021 Morley College students, tutors and alumni come together to present a spectacle of art works in the underground space of The Crypt at St. Johns Church, Waterloo.

Responding to the Festival’s theme of ‘Respair’: the return of hope after a period of despair, each artist has made work that reflects personal and wider cultural responses to the events of the past year. Work on show includes projection, film and photography, animation, light installation and digital media.

The current social ‘Zeitgeist’ would seem to suggest a feeling of optimism for the future. The show’s title ‘Into the Light’ reflects this mood, but also speaks to a period of tentative transition; from a difficult time of uncertainty towards new possibilities. So, come and join us in a dark underground space, illuminated by diverse artwork that suggests a new way forward: ‘Into The Light’.
