"Normal" people sought for arts project

Taxi drivers, office cleaners, retired army generals and teenage skateboarders who have never given a second thought to the world of art are wanted for a new project.

If you would normally shudder at the thought of visiting a fine art gallery, or turn over the telly for all culture shows except Hartbeat, the Last Man project could be for you.

You will be asked to spare a few hours over a three week period, to imagine society has collapsed and all the old rules of design and art have gone.

They will take away an object, adapt it and redesign it to make it better, before returning it to the Stanley Picker Gallery, where someone else can take it away and adapt it further.

University students have already signed up but the organisers are looking for ‘normal people’ to take part too.

An introductory evening will take place at Kingston University on December 4, from 6pm to 8.30pm.
