Arts School 
Lab 2013 is a two-week summer school focused on collaboration, creativity and a real engagement with contemporary life. It is an intensive learning programme intended to bring together creative people with an active curiosity about ideas and action through the arts.

Core Tutors include film-maker and director Penny Woolcock, artist and co-founder of muf architecture/art, Katherine Clark.

Arts School Lab requires an open mind because it explores the idea of ‘unlearning’ conventions and education through conversation and practical experiences. This year’s project follows on from the success of Arts School Lab 2012, which explored art and social change informed by educational ideas from the Bauhaus (1919–33). In 2013, the project is influenced by ideas from Black Mountain College (1933–54), the American avant-garde arts school centred on freedom and experiential education. The principle of this arts education was to reconnect art with life, educating the whole person to become fully awake to life. 

Attendance is required every day and some evenings for the whole two-week programme (17 to 28 June inclusive). Activities will take place around the Barbican Centre and East London. You will need to make your own accommodation and travel arrangements. All sessions will be in English. 

Age guidance 18+
Suitable for creative professionals from all art forms
