Arts Lab Experimental visual arts for social change

‘Curating should benefit wellbeing in the community’

Fran, 22, worked with us as a volunteer studio assistant between graduating from History of Art at the University of West England and beginning her Masters in Curating at Bristol University.Through Arts Lab she has had direct engagement with artists and grown her interest in art’s ability to benefit wellbeing in the community.

‘After 3 years of academic study it was nice to be back in a studio, engaging with the making element again. I have been inspired by the creativity and outreach initiatives at Arts Lab, informing my future research and practice in contemporary curation.’
