Project Domain gave Downs View SLD School (Brighton), Ickburgh SLD School (Hackney) and Torfield School (Hastings) the opportunity to work intensively with artists over the course of a full academic year, enabling a level of continuous engagement often missing from arts in schools projects.
The artists established a stimulating and unusual space within the Project Art Works geodesic dome, which was pitched in the school grounds for the duration of the termly visits.
This combination of familiar and unfamiliar spaces allowed the students to explore a range of creative opportunities, accessing mixed media including painting, drawing, construction, digital photography and film.
The project ended in July 2004 with celebratory film showings in each school. In addition, installations of individual and group self-portraits created through the project have been installed around the school buildings as a permanent reminder for pupils and teachers.
