LU Arts’ Radar offers week of artist-led workshops for students
LU Arts will be offering free workshops for students next week as part of Co-Lab – a brand new week of creative events organised by Radar that has a focus on interdisciplinary collaborations.
Co-Lab invites a number of inspiring artists, whose work involves collaboration or engaging with different subject areas, to lead on various workshops throughout the week (Monday 28 Jan – Friday 1 February), which are open for all students to attend, regardless of artistic skill or experience.
The week encourages students to meet new people, learn new skills and be encouraged to think about problems differently.
Nick Slater, Director of LU Arts, commented: “We hope that the week will bring together students from different disciplines to not only take part in a workshop, but to share skills and ideas with other students.
“We are supportive of collaboration and interdisciplinary working being something that can play an important role in their [the students] academic study and future careers.”
All sessions are free to attend, although a £3 deposit will be required per workshop, which will be refunded after attending.
Below is a schedule of the sessions which will take place:
- Monday 28 January: Lindsey Mendick on craft, ceramics and gender
- Tuesday 29 January: Studio Polpo on architecture, social enterprise, collaboration
- Wednesday 30 January: Anna Barham and Ahren Warner on writing, performance, poetry
- Thursday 31 January: Esther Rolinson and Sean Clark on computer programming, digital technology, interaction
- Friday 1 February: Trip to Birmingham - visit various galleries and exhibitions including IKON, BOM, Eastside Projects and Forward!
