Artist Sophie Giblin, Director of Kollektiv Gallery and Fast Art, together with teacher Catherine Chirnside and students from the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy, will work with small teams of participants to generate ideas, develop a concept, then make and sell their idea. Everyone will be given specific roles: curator, photographer, timekeeper, treasurer, shopkeeper and customer to develop their entrepreneurial talents.
All you need to bring is a playful attitude, a fed belly (or snacks), and a little spare change. You’ll leave with a fresh artwork, tons of new skills and, if your team works well, maybe even a few coins in your pocket.
All materials will be provided.
But hurry spaces are limited, Book your places now!
