This year for CoLab at TL I have decided to feature two home groups of people. Firstly, our one-to-one teaching staff and secondly, alumni. So, despite inviting brilliant people into our community from around the world, I am really happy to announce that this year CoLab projects will be run by staff members Naomi Butterworth, John Crawford, Mikhael Kasakhevich, Rivka Golani, Gerry McCrystal, Sarah Wookey Douglas Finch, Michelle Meinhart, Phil Pesket, Hugh Wilkinson, Melanie Henry, Louise Jackson and Peter Knapp and David Bahanovich to name a few.
Other project leaders are TL alumni such as Femi Koleoso from Ezra who is running a Grime project; Zoe Georgallis and Will Scott who bring their talent and unique skills to lead Soundpainting; Oliver Payne, fresh from working on the hit show, The Grinning Man in the West End and Phil Meadows who will bring his Trio Skint to play on the opening night party of CoLab.
Working together with recent alumni, we offer fantastic role models to our students and staff keeping us on our toes and build a bridge between the art world and college life.
And to cap that, there are staff members at TL who have hidden talents that many people are not aware of. Award-winning theatre and dance director Adam Hypki – yes! He’s our graphic designer will be working mentoring a project as we welcome students from Poland and we are expecting some surprise offerings from the Estates and Facilities team.
Next feature CoLab Dance!
