Every year, CoLab features dozens of projects which have been proposed and developed by students, staff or invited guests.

Students receive expert mentorship and guidance from Trinity Laban professors, or from visiting artists from around the world. Projects often include an exciting range of styles and influences, exploring subject matters such as literature & art, community relationships, world-music, gender, and politics.
