In the lead up to Coogee Live 2020, we have been working with Cockburn Youth Centre in an exciting project, that engages youth groups in the design and build of a life-size‘pin-wall’, under the mentorship and guidance of artist Lewis Horne.
The collaboration provides the group with an opportunity for creative input, skills building and problem solving throughout the project build, with the final piece being displayed at Coogee Live for festival-goers to interact with before the piece returns to the youth centre for display.
Lewis Horne contributes over twenty years of diverse experience within the art and design sector with a strong knowledge and technical skills basis. He brings creativity, resourcefulness and an understanding of aesthetic ideals to each project. In parallel to his personal artistic journey, Lewis has extensive experience in facilitating creative workshops with a diversity of community groups, including youth at-risk, migrant, disability and mental health backgrounds.
