Arts Education Exchange: The Reinvention of Daily Life

28 September 2019-00:00-12 January 2020-00:00

The Reinvention of Daily Life_Arts Education Exchange_Margate NOW festival 2019

A group of six young people who have been referred through local schools due to challenges faced in mainstream education work with illustrator and artist Kavel Rafferty to create large-scale street art pieces. Found objects, photography and drawings  provide patterns, textures and shapes to combine with studio developments in paint, cut-outs, print, stencils and colour. We will find beauty in the mundane and banal, the everyday and the un-noticed. Research and individual inspiration will inform these abstract works and a new, collective language will be cultivated through these processes to create compositions for these open air artworks. Works will be installed in boarded up windows/doors, on disused buildings and vacant walls. Works will be framed by the buildings; redecorating Margate with Margate. Art for all.

Supported by Arts Council England with National Lottery funding.
