The AccessArt Village is now visiting its third venue, on its national tour, and can be seen at Brentwood Road Gallery adjacent to Frances Bardsley Academy in Romford, from the 10th until the 31st January 2018.
Many thanks to Lisa Walker, the curator of the gallery and Jacinta Appleby – Head of Visual Art and ‘Lead practitioner for Creativity,’ at the Frances Bardsley Academy, for facilitating the AccessArt Village at Brentwood Road Gallery.
And thank you to Brilliant Makers from Lisa’s lunchtime Art club in the gallery, for their contributions to the AccessArt Village.
The gallery works in partnership with teachers from the academy, a state funded secondary school, providing an ‘exemplary education for girls aged eleven to eighteen,’ to devise a relevant program of exhibitions and gallery education for the students and the local community.
“Ultimately we strive to make art and the creative process available to those who might not otherwise have access to them through community outreach to all age groups: children, adults and seniors.” Lisa Walker- Curator
AccessArt is delighted that the AccessArt Village will be seen by so many young, aspiring artists and also available to inspire ideas around the themes which have emerged from it around home, creativity and community.
Lisa has created a program of education and outreach for the duration of the AccessArt Village’s stay in the gallery, including a line-up of workshops for feeder primary schools, as well as a gallery open day on Saturday 20th January 10am – 2pm.
