Creative Hub Laboratories


We are working with Exeter Phoenix Creative Hub to bring help connect and inspire artists and new meaningful work in Exeter.

These experimental workshops are open to the early-to-mid career artists of all disciplines and to curious people who want a new license to nurture their creativity with others. Led by what you want and need, this is a chance to explore new ways to create meaningful work and connections in a relaxed and open environment.

Meet new people, try things out, sharpen your craft, fail, discover, and succeed in learning and sharing something fun and new.

The labs will be facilitated by performance artists and dramatherapists Amerie Rose and Samantha Wraith.

Bookings can be made through Exeter Phoenix website. We’d love to hear from you so please email any questions, thoughts or ideas to Samantha or Amerie at (haiku also welcome!)
