INSPIRE ‘Leading through Culture’

LV21 was one of the 12 lead organisations on the INSPIRE ‘Leading through Culture’ Project, part of the Kent Schools Olympic Legacy Programme funded by Kent County Council, Artswork and Royal Opera House Bridge. Along with four other professional artists they invited me to deliver leadership workshops for the BIG Arts Challenge.

From the depths of the ship I helped each school group to develop a series of monoprints, using LV21 as inspiration.

The workshops in school focused on collaborative large-scale prints using a relief method and rollers. Young leaders learnt how to make the prints and then taught other students.
