Intoart – Staying Creative During the Covid-19 Pandemic

This September we welcomed sixteen artists back to the Intoart studio, reopening our Peckham studio after the first lockdown for 8 weeks of full-time studio programming. In October, the team, artists and our support networks tested out new ways of remote working concurrent to studio activity. Meaning we could respond as and when needed.

As we now move into a second lockdown this November, every artist has a bespoke set of art materials, resources, research and accessible plans for home studio working. Linked in remotely with a member of the team in a new programme to share new work over zoom, on the phone or meeting up one to one to stay creative and well.

Change Your Mind / 20 Years Programme

For our 20th year, Intoart launch ‘Change Your Mind’ a programme of exhibitions and events taking place throughout 2020 in and around Peckham, South London. The programme will present The Room by Andre Williams, The Performance by Ntiense Eno-Amooquaye, The Meal by Mawuena Kattah, The Exhibition at Copeland Gallery, The Design Collection and The Intoart Annual.

The title of our 20th anniversary programme is inspired by the artwork ‘Change Your Mind’ by Andre Williams, whose striking text based works, including ‘It’s a Disaster’, ‘Hard Labour’, ‘Fun’ and ‘Glum’ challenge and entertain with unmatched efficiency and wit.

Our 20 Years programme is an invitation to celebrate artists and artwork that in the words of Andre Williams, really can ‘Change Your Mind’.

Intoart at 20 Years

Intoart was founded 20 years ago when co-founders Ella Ritchie and Sam Jones left art college and started the first ever Intoart project in Peckham, South London.

Our ambition then was to build a studio where people with learning disabilities have equality of opportunity to practise as artists. In 2020, based at our fully resourced art and design studio at Peckham Levels, we look forward to sharing work by artists who have built extraordinary bodies of work over many years and have led the way in driving the ambition of the organisation.
