Reflecting on the First PUSH Lab in Edinburgh

I had the great pleasure of attending the first PUSH LAB in Edinburgh in February 2017. I attended across the last 3 days of an 8 day artist development, residential LAB as part of a brilliant EU project that The Ark is a partner of. Following a year and a half of meetings, planning and the painstaking application process it is such a joy to finally get our hands dirty with the work. The important work of developing and advancing cultural work for young audiences through an innovative and highly positive artist development project.
