The Wall: Poetic Art Instillation

  • Cartèlea Howell

The video below details some of the feedback that was received from the 300+ guests on a thought-provoking art installation (funded by the arts council England) where I was the curator, designer and host. I created and set designed the idea of having a 'reflection wall' for the guests to write their thoughts and feelings. The main topic was focussed on gun and knife crime, where it was portrayed in artistic format with performances, poetry and also a safe space for discussion on a hard-hitting but very important topic. This was a fantastic experience for me as I was able to showcase and express my creativity in the design element as well as leaving a lasting impression on the guests. I also created a blog to documentation purposes, as it definitely one of the highlights in my creative journey. You can view the blog here: https://thewallpoeticartinstillation.wordpress.com/
