The School

Founded by Graeme Wood, of The Graeme Wood Foundation, Artology unlocks the creative potential of young people through experiential learning in the performing and creative arts.

The Project

Red Room Education supporter Graeme Wood, of The Graeme Wood Foundation, founded Artology, a not for profit organisation whose goal is youth development and social change through the arts. Artology Remix is a program that teams up teenagers and professionals to create a new genre of multi-artform performance works that reinterpret and reinvent masterpieces of the past.

Australian poet and Artistic Director of The Red Room Company, Johanna Featherstone, went along to the first workshop of this year's Artology Remix project and helped students work through various writing excercises. Treat yourself to some early morsels of the project here.
