Arts Lab is committed to making meaningful social impact. Based in the spacious Studio 20 in the heart of the Dartington estate, our growing team of artists and experienced facilitators are on hand to create, run, collaborate on and deliver projects for broad-ranging groups in the community. We work with education and mental health services, students of art and education, refugees, prisoners, learners of English as a second language and other marginalised groups.

The Lab embraces experimentation and play, individual expression and social and cultural diversity. We are committed to the arts, their practice and how they link on a fundamental level to what it is to be human. In line with Dartington’s ethos, we see ourselves as an extension to the “progressive lab for living and learning”.
