Making Us

Contains Art

We are pleased to be returning to Contains Art, an art collective based in Watchet Somerset, this summer with a newly commissioned work – Making Us, by Laura Dekker, a 2014 Lumen Prize Finalist.

Making Us will consist of interactive installations across the town of Watchet, Somerset, running from 19th July to 1st September.

The five installations will each examine the role of technologies with respect to nature, human life and human relations, with particular significance for the heritage and contemporary life in Watchet.

Contains Art was established in 2012 as a not-for-profit social enterprise in an isolated, rural, deprived part of Somerset, which has the lowest social mobility in the UK, with Watchet the most deprived ward in the district. Contains Art was founded in this context, on the firm belief that who you are, what you have, and where you live, should not restrict your opportunities to see, take part in, and create some of the best art in the world
