About the Artists
Open The Box Arts is a Cornwall based arts organisation led by visual artist Melanie Young and community dance artist Caroline Schanche. Our practice encompasses visual art and curation, choreography and film. The starting premise for this artistic collaboration is ‘un–knowing’. They create a space full of possibility, that allows them to experiment freely so that text, objects and images generate the material for their artworks. This collaborative practice is predicated on creative engagement both between ourselves and the communities where the artists work. Through this approach they create high quality community engagement projects, where the participants feel their voices are heard and can trace the journey from their story to the completed artwork.
