Sir Stirling Moss launches gallery Artmobile radical reach out programme
The new Artmobile enables the Gallery’s successful programme of education and outreach to be extended to an ever growing number of community venues, schools and events.
LONDON.- Formula 1 racing legend Sir Stirling Moss today launched Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Artmobile project, which will transport its multi award-winning education and outreach programme to more sites than ever before. The Artmobile, which features a striking exterior design by Royal Academician Humphrey Ocean, is a DSFK Loadhopper which yields a spacious interior, allowing space for large amounts of creative materials to transport along with a teaching artist and project coordinator.

After participants from the Gallery’s outreach programmes tore off the paper wrapping to reveal the Artmobile, Stirling Moss took the vehicle for its first official drive around the Gallery before its inaugural outreach journey to a community centre for older people on the Ethnic Communities Programme in Anerley and then to The Well Centre, a youth health centre for young people aged 13 to 19, in Streatham.

Stirling Moss said “I’ve driven over 100 different makes of racing car in my career but this is the first time I’ve taken to the wheel of a Loadhopper! I’m thrilled to take the Artmobile for its first official spin. The Gallery already runs a hugely important outreach programme but the Artmobile will take this further - how great that such a fun and compact vehicle will transport the creativity you get in the Gallery studio to those who need it most.”

The new Artmobile enables the Gallery’s successful programme of education and outreach to be extended to an ever growing number of community venues, schools and events. It will transport a Gallery artist, coordinator and top quality art materials to engage people from a variety of backgrounds in creative workshops.

Dulwich Picture Gallery currently works with over 100 community centres, care homes and hospitals through its pioneering ‘Good Times: Art for Older People’ programme, with a year round free programme of creative activities. Meanwhile, the Gallery’s vibrant Youth Engagement programme ‘The Creatives’ attracts hundreds of harder-to-reach young people every year. The Gallery also runs a wide-ranging public programme of art and craft workshops, family events and lectures.
