What is this?
What is nationality? Is it important?
Over six sessions, you'll be working alongside artist Sophie Mallett to explore these questions. You'll try out a range of creative activities including lyric writing, creating banners, making videos and experimenting with sound.
As a group, you will explore what identity and nationality mean to you, creating art to express your ideas, while working towards an Arts Award Bronze qualification.
Snacks will be provided during the Thursday evening sessions and lunch during the Saturday sessions.
The Institute of Anything is Cubitt Artists’ young people’s programme that supports talent and leadership in the visual arts.

It is important to make a commitment to the project to get the most out of it. However, if there are one or two sessions you can’t attend, let us know.
This is what young people have told us about the Institute of Anything:
“It showed me that you can take art anywhere and make it your own.”
“I learnt to come out of my comfort zone and set myself a challenge.”
“I enjoyed working in a group. Everyone was very welcoming!”
“The artists were very confident and clear. They respected my ideas and helped me develop them.”
Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification that you can put on your CV or UCAS form. If you already have Bronze and want to work towards Silver, let us know.
The Institute of Anything is part of Central St Martins’ Insights programme. Insights supports young people whose parents or carers who have not attended university into higher education at University of the Arts London.
