Students during the Factory International Kusama X Project in 2023

Factory International Kusama X Project

( Published: 19/07/2023)

Year 9 art students took part in the Factory International Kusama X Project, where they visited the Kusama exhibition at the Aviva building in Manchester.

After visiting the Kusama exhibition, students took part in three workshops with artists and an MMU fashion student to create Kusama clothes from recycled materials. The completed clothes were paraded at Festival Square in front of the general public at the Aviva building at Factory International on Saturday 15th June 2023. The Fashion parade was covered by Northwest Tonight and was a real celebration of how art can inspire and help build confidence in our students.

Students really enjoyed creating work to exhibit alongside a worldwide artist, collaborating with two other schools, exploring materials in a fun way, and just enjoying the pleasure of being creative. This really has been a very special project for the participating students and we look forward to more of the same with next year’s collaboration.
