How Art makes a difference...
Art is an enriching and highly effective tool in public involvement. The creative methods and processes of art production can help people understand concepts and ideas in a totally different way. An understanding of cultural uniformity, educational concepts and sectoral relevance in society can be understood better through collaboration and art. When making art, individuals interact with their own unique view point and this brings greater appreciation and understanding of ideas, and if appropriately considered, this could improve society.
Art making is also an excellent way of documenting social experience. We live in the digital age, this will inevitably bring social change and we can explore how this affects us through visual means. It’s important that we document social change through the Arts.
Visual methods are also a very effective way of helping people who may struggle with mental health address psychological issues. Sometimes a visual approach works best in explaining individual perspectives. St Roberts wants to assist community groups in helping individuals in this way.
Getting out there...
The St Roberts Studio can move wherever it needs to be, making it easier for individuals or groups to access art. Care facilities and community groups, can all benefit from the flexible nature of the studio.
Our portable arts facility is designed to share art education in the community. Community members can participate in activities and obtain a basic understanding of the tools to make art. These skills will help individuals gain confidence in their own art making capabilities. The studio can be hired for morning or afternoon sessions. For a day or week or longer, according to the needs of the community. It will be driven to your desired venue and the artist will deliver the sessions on location.
St Roberts is keen to work alongside art institutions that would benefit from the promotion of exhibitions in the community. The rocket could be used as a portable extension of the Gallery, with information and activities based around current exhibitions.
