Arts Lab is a social enterprise that uses experimental visual art to connect artists and communities for mutual benefit.
We run a What’s On programme of events and workshops from our home studio at Dartington in South Devon.
We involve communities in hands on creative making – from carers and children to teachers and students; prison officers and prisoners to corporate leaders and office workers.
We support artists to develop their practices in new, exciting ways that connect with communities.
Our mission is to inspire creative thinking and positive transformation across communities with shared, hands-on involvement with and appreciation of contemporary art practice. Provided with opportunities to explore, experiment and express, not only are we helped to overcome obstacles and to make better decisions, we become better collaborators and have a broader understanding of our own, each others’ and the wider world.
