Arts Lab Experimental visual arts for social change

Questioning the need for art college

HOLLY, 22, is a local creative interested in bringing people together through making and conversation around recycled objects and materials. As a self-trained artist contemplating art college, she joined the Lab in order to explore collaborative practice and build on her experience running workshops. Holly’s contributions included an interactive installation at Arts Lab’s 3rd Birthday celebration and a Family workshop using recycled materials.

‘My time with Arts Lab helped me to create an exciting, experimental space that was accessible to everyone with a desire to create. My next collaboration will be with sculptor and friend who is soon to be graduating from Wimbledon College of Art. We are both interested in how sculpture can come alive when combined with the movement of the human body and photography. Watch this space for upcoming workshops and an interactive exhibition.’
