The Artsadmin Summer School was a chance for people new to live art and performance to be immersed in process based learning for a month in a stimulating, creative and supportive environment.
Artsadmin invites an artist to curate and facilitate the Summer School for a three year cycle. The artsist not only collaborates with young people but works with them on an equal basis developing their own ideas and skills alongside the participants. This provides a space that encourages experimentation and freedom within a participatory practice.
2007-2009 saw Mem Morrison work with a range of young practitioners on themes of identity, belonging and culture based around spaces in the newly redeveloped Toynbee Studios.
Many of the participants have continued to work with Artsadmin as part of the youth board or youth advisory network developing and delivering projects and events for other young and emerging artists.
