Join us for a discussion on supported studio practices in discussion with artists and staff from Portugal Prints studio and Submit to Love Studios.
In contrast to the stereotyped image of the lone artist toiling in an isolated studio, this conversation will focus on the value of collective making within a supported environment, and explore what is possible in these settings that does not exist elsewhere.
This interactive and relaxed discussion will take place in Whitechapel Gallery’s Creative Studio, and has been organised in response to our current exhibition A Century of the Artist’s Studio: 1920-2020.
Portugal Prints is a therapeutic arts project within Mind in Brent, Wandsworth, and Westminster. They have been bridging mental health support and artistic development since 1979. They work with artists living with mental health difficulties to construct a life beyond support services, a life of creativity and curiosity.
Art is at the heart of Portugal Prints and the main tool to empower people to express themselves to build resilience and to nurture meaningful relationships. With a non-clinical approach, they offer a tailored long-term, holistic support that is practical, social, emotional, and creative.
Submit to Love Studios is home to a group of artists living with a brain injury. We work collectively in an open studio environment and help bring out the best in each other. The act of making is an empowering and hopeful one. In making something, you’re discovering – new gifts, new culture, new connections and new identities. That’s why our mission is “discovery through art”. Art that is by everyone, for everyone. All artists are members of Headway East London in Hackney — a local charity supporting brain injury survivors, their families and carers.
