The Catalyst by Make (Good) Trouble

Make (Good) Trouble is facilitating 14 free art based workshops for young people across East Sussex, funded by East Sussex County Council to evaluate whether art has a positive impact on their emotional wellbeing.  The project is called The Catalyst. Jane Keating writes.

Location: Hastings Contemporary Gallery
Workshop Dates: 11am – 3pm, 20 & 21 November 2023
Exhibition of Artwork – The Stade 21st 4pm – 6pm November 2023
Ages: 16 – 24yr old
Lunch provided
Cost – FREE

Working with renowned sculpture artist Kerry Lemon, each participant will create their own A2 portrait fabric banner (inspired by a punk/ sneaker aesthetic – think Vivienne Westwood and Kanye).

As a group, they’ll consider the history of protest and specifically banners (suffragettes; miner’s strikes; Trump; youth climate; humorous slogans; iconography etc.). The young people will think about the types of things we want to use our voices for (for example, fast fashion, climate change, gender rights, police brutality, voting reform) and learn LOTS of fabric collage skills to create unique, iconic banners.
