YARD Arts School

“The responsibility of an artist representing an oppressed people is to make the revolution irresistible." - Toni Cade Bambara

“What I do commit to for this lifetime and as many as I get, is to learn with you always. To study the changes you bring to my body, my spirit, my mind. To be in school with you for the duration, in a curriculum called ‘how we endure.’” - Alexis Pauline Gumbs

YARD Arts School runs multiple times throughout the year, and takes place over a two week period. During this, we invite artists to be in residence at YARD, so they can join guest speakers and our community to collectively respond to a shared provocation. It's a time where we test our theory of change: if we fully resource and meet the material needs of artists, and convene together to imagine worlds beyond our current paradigm, what might become possible?

The first YARD Arts School asks us to: Imagine a World Without Prisons...

Across a two week period (16th-20th and 23rd-28th May) we'll be joined by three incredible artists: André Anderson (Freedom and Balance), Chiizii and Screama.

The Art School runs between 10am-4pm. Check our socials to find out times for the final Saturday, which is a showcase day. YARD's doors are open throughout this period, so drop by for as much or little as you are able to.

 

Come meet some dope artists, make some art - whether you consider yourself an artist or not - and let’s imagine and design together new, liberated, irresistible worlds.
