GOOD IDEA LAB

Come visit the ‘Good Idea Lab’ at the Roundhouse Community Centre this summer! Brought to you by the Association of Very Good Ideas and Tin Can Studio, the ‘Good Idea Lab’ will feature a series of investigative laboratories and celebrations that invite you to explore, discuss and re-imagine some Very Good Ideas. These experimental labs and workshops will invite you to make art, join in performance and celebrate Good Ideas in all their glory! Find updated information on the GOOD IDEA LAB BLOG.

THE ASSOCIATION OF VERY GOOD IDEAS is an artist project dedicated to the creative investigation of Very Good Ideas. TIN CAN STUDIO is a mobile project space housed in a vintage 18 ft streamline trailer. Fully portable, the space is designed to accommodate a variety of creative activities.
