Make friends, develop your art practice and experience your creative future at Cubitt’s Institute of Anything. 

Spend eight days developing ideas and making work alongside artist-filmmaker Beverley Bennett and Cubitt’s Education team. Through dialogue, collage, placard-making, curation and film, we’ll explore our individual and collective experiences of the past, present and future.

We’ll be joined by guest tutors from Central St Martin’s, University of the Arts London. You’ll also work towards an Arts Award Bronze, a national qualification in the arts.

“Institute of Anything showed me that you can take art anywhere and make it your own.”

Institute of Anything is our programme for 13-19 year olds. Young people work alongside contemporary artists, develop skills and make friends. It’s called Institute of Anything because anything is possible. We support young people to take their art practice in new directions.

This project has been commissioned as part of Islington's Summerversity and Launchpad programme, and is supported by Islington Council.
