Arts Lab Experimental visual arts for social change


CHANGE is a constant. In 2020, it’s been more noticeable than ever. Everything has changed considerably since the start of the Covid crisis; from individual identity, sense of purpose and how we go about our daily lives, to social justice, racial integration, health and community. 

The theme has been popular with our team of young artists. It started as a stimulus for creative responses during our lockdown Call and Response activity (see May 4th-10th instagram posts), and has been revisited this summer. Developed into an in- depth research project for a small group of art students, we wanted to provide a framework for self-directed learning during the quieter holiday weeks. At the same time, to bring a ray of light into people’s lives centred around a theme which we can all identify with – change and the unknown.
