ABOUT THE PROJECT
Design collective Nous Vous were invited to develop a programme of weekly workshops at the ICA for parents and children from the West End Children’s Centre in Soho. Our weekly workshops were developed in response to the Early Years and Foundation Stage areas of learning and development and in consultation with staff from WECC.
Nous Vous is a group of artists / friends collaborating on design projects, illustration, exhibitions and workshops.
We're based across London and Leeds, but we're still maintaining a working process of collaborating on things as much as possible, experimenting and finding out what happens when we get together — that's part of the fun of working in a group. Usually, what we make as Nous Vous is a lot more exciting that what we could achieve individually.
The context of a project determines whether the outcome is labeled as art, design or something else, but whether we're making pieces for an exhibition, designing promotional material or leading workshops, we're generally approaching things in the same way, and trying to have fun in the process!

Established in 1947 by a collective of artists, poets and writers to explore contemporary culture the ICA is the UK’s original, charitable, multidisciplinary art centre. It has been at the forefront of artistic experiment since its formation, having presented some of the most radical exhibitions,
