MAS Lab Social Action At #TeamKC 07/01/2020

RAISING AWARENESS

In aid of their upcoming initiative, representatives from MAS Lab visited #TeamKC to raise awareness of the importance of Social Action projects, their aim was to chat to our students about the topics they are passionate about making a change for by taking part in several activities, including a Kahoot quiz, our students did us proud as all suggestions were very well received and provided a great basis for future MAS Lab projects. they also promoted the relaxing effects of bringing pets into work, our students obviously loved this idea and the pups loved the attention they received!

THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL ACTION

Social action naturally explores interests, hobbies, and young people’s skills. It is especially important in this day and age because it helps young people develop a level of social awareness, a sense of belonging and will also strengthen young people’s social bonds within their local community. participating in social action projects allows you also to develop new skills in various areas, this could be anything from ICT skills to communication, allowing you to increase your career prospects.

WHO ARE MAS LAB?

MAS Lab was set up by curator Kevyn Gammond as a means of bringing together a team of passionate artists/volunteers from all walks of life, their aim is to create opportunities for concept driven projects, finding ways to engage with your local community. Their overall goal is to make every project people-centric and not only product-centric. Each MAS Lab artist aims to explore the creation and expression of cultural identity through the arts.

The MAS motto – MAS is a lifestyle job, we all enjoy coming to work every day”

WHAT’S NEXT FOR MAS?

The next objective for MAS Lab, and the aim of the exercise as a whole, was to recruit a group of likeminded students to undertake their own social action project, working towards making improvements to the college and the local community. As MAS Lab goes from strength to strength with several highly successful events including Migrant X & World Peace Day under their belt, we hope to encourage all of our students to join in and show their support!
