If you are a social enterprise, organisation or independent company interested in or already working towards creativity and play being more integral to people’s lives and communities, Arts Lab would like to meet you and explore ways of working together.
Our partnership with the Dartington Hall Trust began in 2016. In line with their ethos of experimentation and social inclusion, we see ourselves as an extension to the ‘progressive lab for living and learning’ and believe that creating art is central to ‘the many sided life’. The Lab’s base in the heart of the estate is an ideal place from which to run our programme of workshops and events for the general public.
We’ve been in partnership with Kevicc from the start, supplementing the school’s visual arts provision. We run annual enrichment days, offer support for portfolio building and provide opportunities for 16+ artist volunteers to get involved at the Lab. Our arm also extends to the Art Foundation students at Kennicott.
Arts Lab has an ongoing partnership with Plymouth College of Art – ‘a beacon of hope that still values the individual human being – the artist and the maker’. We are a resource for graduates and postgraduates, providing opportunities for professional practice development, placement mentoring and internships and residencies.
