Who for & why

Art students, teachers and trainee teachers

In opposition to all that is trammelled and uninspired, Arts Lab believes that artists and teachers are catalysts for positive change and forgers of deep connections. Art and people-centred education make the world a better place. Our aim is to bring artists, educationalists and their practices together to experiment and play and to express individuality and social and cultural diversity. The Lab’s quarterly programme is a vital resource to connect, collaborate and develop innovative approaches to facilitation and the creation of inspiring artwork.

‘(We) need to challenge what we take for granted in our daily lives. Life is not linear. It’s organic. (There exists a) dynamic diversity of talent’
