I & ME: a project bridging the gap between arts education and exhibition through collaboration on a four-day project, followed by a one-day event; all held in Cubitt’s gallery.
The participants, aged 14-16, worked with a number of practicing contemporary artists in workshops that took an interdisciplinary approach to exploring aspects of contemporary culture and forms of communication.
By looking at different forms of exchange during the workshops the artists and young people had the opportunity to put their explorations to practice by creating a day of activities that invite exchange, both through dialogue and making. The one-day event took place in Cubitt’s gallery on Saturday 30th June 2007 and was open to the public.
Through the process of looking at art from new and exciting perspectives and exploring communication between others and ourselves in new ways, the workshop participants and artists developed an appreciation of the importance of collaboration. The project also aimed to enable the participants to connect and establish a level playing field of collective understanding, and above all to have fun learning about art, each other and themselves.
