We are an artist-run social enterprise that uses experimental visual art to connect artists and communities for mutual benefit.
- workshops and events in the Lab at Dartington
- projects in the community
- a platform for artist development
Our opportunities for groups and individuals to work alongside artists, encourage experimentation with materials, techniques and ‘out of the box’ ideas. Developing creativity in everyone can help boost morale, opportunity, a sense of purpose and confidence for positive change. We work with people with limited access to artistic making and through our collaborative partnerships, we help individuals across communities to feel more connected, expressive and valued.
Collaboration, curiosity and play underpin everything that Arts Lab does.
Our mission is to inspire creative thinking and social transformation across communities with hands-on involvement with and appreciation of modern art. Given the opportunity 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.
