Saturday 8 – Sunday 16 July 2017, Artists’ Studio
Get the Message is a Camden Arts Centre project working with young people and teachers from local Special Education Needs (SEN) schools in collaboration with artists and our partner ActionSpace. During the 2016 – 2017 academic year, artists Andrew Omoding, Betsy Dadd, Linda Stupart have worked with Swiss Cottage, Mapledown and Woodfield Schools in the boroughs of Camden, Brent and Barnet.
This year has focused on transformation, using materials, colour and layers to create objects, drawings, prints, projections, costumes and ceramics. The exhibition presents the work created over the last 12 months as one immersive installation. The artists have reworked the artworks as a way of curating the show, taking the lead for the aesthetics of the space from the students: making something, adding more.
