Community focused Art Project ASYMBAL joined together with JET Tower Project students from Langdon Park in the beautiful Yurt Cafe at The Royal Foundation of St Katherine to get creative!
The students were joined by artists Marcus Foster and William Redgrove, who are the men behind ASYMBAL and also
guest artist Marianne Thoermer.
The students were asked to use their imagination and sketch superheros using coloured pens, followed by using different materials and actions to structure an abstract piece of art. Lots of fun was had we were delighted to be a part of this fantastic project! You can read more about ASYMBAL below.
ASYMBAL is an ongoing community focused art project by Marcus Foster and William Redgrove that explores the bringing together of communities and cultures. Through workshops, activities and conversations with a variety of groups within the local community, this project aims to celebrate a fusion of cultural identities, culminating in an exciting exhibition at the Bow Arts Trust that will turn the gallery space into a hub of creative activity.
Why is this project important?
- We believe its vital for all people to be provided a rich and varied creative education.
- By directly engaging with communities in creative activities, artists can help enrich the lives of the less fortunate.
- We believe the voices of the most vulnerable in our society should be amplified in positive ways.
- Projects such as this affirm the importance of working with communities to create engaging works of art.
- Co-creative projects such as ASYMBAL encourage vital networks between artists, the community and the public.
- The audiences engaging with the workshops, exhibition and events will have a chance to learn more about their neighbours, communities and local artists.
