This workshop will creatively explore surviving and thriving in the art school as BAME/ artists of colour.


Publication and Workshop, 2016

Hosted by London-based group Collective Creativity, who will offer critical reflections on the history and the contemporary circumstances under which students and other people of colour experience contemporary art school curriculum from the perspectives of QTIPOC (Queer, Trans* and Intersex People of Colour) creative practice. Collective Creativity produce spaces that are explicitly inclusive of, and created for and by, people of different sexualities and genders, and people of colour.

The workshop will use the ‘Surviving the Art School’ Publication, produced by Collective Creativity with local art students and published by Nottingham Contemporary, as a starting point in order to gain insights into what this visually entails.
