CoLab – An International Festival of creative learning

CoLab 2015 is only a month away.

Trinity Laban is truly an international institution with many students and staff coming from the four corners of the world. This year sees an amazing line-up of projects to look forward to and the two weeks is rapidly developing into an international arts festival. With its focus on process and learning this makes it the only one of its type in the world alongside Banff in Canada and Cal Arts.
