Arena Artists At Your School or Venue
Arena’s artist-in-residence programs are a unique way to provide students with access to professional artists. Each residency is special and bespoke, but may involve installation,
performance, multimedia and/or music.
See the video below to see an example of an Arena school residency.
Arena’s long-term in-school art residencies build dynamic and creative spaces where young people and professional artists meet on equal terms. Deep listening is combined with play, respect, and a profound understanding of the power of transformation through shared stories. Arena’s residencies are designed to empower, inspire, and allow young people to define themselves and the paces they occupy. Reflected through the skills of professional artists, their stories are honoured and transformed in ways they could never have imagined, while at the same time being utterly recognisable as their own.
