In June, CARAVAN ARTS will return for a Summer collaboration with Brockley Open Studios. Taking the inclusive values of BOS as a starting point, we will work with local schools and a refugee group to create a participatory installation that aims to ‘open up’ and ‘cheer up’ space for visitors. The caravan will be open to the public at Hilly Fields Fayre on 23 June
The caravan was at Croft Fest 2017 in June with site specific installation Space for the People – which saw the interior of the caravan become a miniature Zen Garden with works by Brockley based artist Kaori Homma. Origami workshops for kids took place outside.
CARAVAN ARTS first appearance was at the Telegraph Hill Festival 2017, South East London. The caravan was located at multiple points throughout the festival over the course of a week. In each site, a micro programme of installation, live performance & film screenings explored the complex & conflicting ideas of ‘home’ & a life on the road, through notions of comfort & freedom, displacement & refuge. This was a collaborative project with works provided by Art Refuge UK & Cafe Art.
CARAVAN ARTS works with artists, local communities & places to create temporary, site specific & immersive works within & around the 13ft space of the vintage van.
