Creative Practioner for Interior Design/Design

Arrow Vale Community School, Redditch, B98 0EN

We are a class of year 9 pupils working with our Art teacher on a project where we are exploring the following question:

“How can we improve our corridors & public areas to make them more friendly and representative of our school?”

For this project we are looking for a practitioner to work with us, we imagine that you might be an interior designer, architect, graphic designer, graffiti artist or visual artist. We want somebody to help us build an approach with which, we can convince people that we can affect change in the building. We also have agreement to change one area in the school-so this is a real project.
