Arts & Business New Partners Award, 2004

HS Projects received funds from the Arts & Business New Partners initiative to develop an ambitious series of workshops with lead artists Zatorski & Zatorski for the employees of Insight Investment. 

Participating staff were encouraged to experiment with all sorts of visual language, from photography, to drawing, video, portraiture, text and a ‘happening’ at the end of the last workshop, offering them a wide spectrum of creative possibilities.  Each workshop was carefully structured to feed into the next and so create a momentum and a sense of anticipation.

The theme of the project was ‘a journey’ and participants were tasked with taking photographs and experimenting with image-making using a variety of media, to represent a journey, real or metaphorical.  They explored visual language and creative thinking.  A total of about 2,000 photographs, drawings and text pieces were produced during the project.  The participants also created an artist’s book and a number of short video films which linked ordinary objects to extraordinary histories.
