Celebrating creativity and uniqueness
The exhibition celebrates the creativity and uniqueness of our community artists from ArtClubs, YouthArts, ArtLab and Adults classes. A special 2 week programme of ArtLab and ArtClub in the Holidays will run alongside the exhibition (visit Whats On for full details).
Art at the Heart’s Aims:
At its simplest, our aim is to get more people making art and culture every day.
Why? The impact of arts education extends far beyond the acquisition of technical skills and nurtures an open mindset that has many other benefits.
We use project based arts learning to develop design thinking–a problem solving process that balances creativity with critical thinking skills. Failure is embraced as a positive step in the design process. This builds resilience. The magic is that the design thinking process is applicable to anything–any career, any topic, any problem.
With our design heads on, we’re rethinking traditional systems for health benefits, education benefits, and community benefits and empowering communities to use design thinking for themselves. This enables us all to contribute to social mobility and equality of opportunity.
