Invisible Dust and Scientists from the London Air Quality Network worked with over 50 young people aged 14-19 from five schools within the Olympic Host Boroughs as part of the Create Skills careers fair held at the Barbican, March 2011. The initiative aims to encourage and equip local young people with advice and experience to pursue a career in the arts.
The workshops focused on air pollution and explored how artists and scientists can work together to raise awareness of air pollution and indeed other environmental issues.
Students were able to try out the specialist equipment used to test air Pollution both in the environment and in our own bodies.
Artist Faisal Abdu’Allah joined the group to share his experiences of working with Scientists to create his own film, Double Pendulum which was commissioned for Invisible Dust.
