Art can be a powerful force for community cohesion, social engagement, skills development, and urban regeneration. The Art Academy is committed to a programme of outreach and community art activities, mainly focused on our local boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth. We have already collaborated with local schools and are currently extending this programme through ‘Articulate’, a new visual-arts based programme working with vulnerable and ‘at risk’ young people.
‘Articulate’ has just completed a year-long pilot programme, made possible by a grant from the JJ Charitable Trust, to whom we are hugely grateful. This was in the form of a series of visual arts workshops, with the aim of developing not only creativity but also general life skills, resulting in tangible benefits for the participating young people.
