As the year is coming to a close, so is this round of volunteers. Lauren McGhee is the second last volunteer from this block we’d like you to meet, and she has been a wonderful addition to our Create workshops.
“I graduated from Painting and Printmaking at The Glasgow School of Art in 2011. Since then I have completed a Masters degree in 20th Century Art History, and was lucky enough to work at the Venice Biennale. My current practice broadly examines the connections and diversions between different and idiosyncratic means of recording and understanding the everyday, and I work between the mediums of drawing, painting, and writing. I seek to produce quietly playful reworkings of human experience and understanding.
Volunteering with Project Ability has been an invigorating experience, and I have greatly enjoyed working with the participants and witnessing the growth of their individual projects. It has completely revitalised my belief in the positive and transformative potentials of an art practice, and I have even found a renewed enthusiasm and well being in my own work. I would recommend volunteering with Project Ability to anyone, not least because of the fantastic conversation and company every week!”
Thank you Lauren!
