In 2022, Wysing Arts Centre and St Peter’s School, Huntingdon, began a new partnership which saw artist Rafał Zajko ‘in residence’ across a school year, running workshops with 270 Year 7 students that led to a significant commission based around their desires for the future. The artist was selected by the students in June 2022, and fifteen months on, a new series of sculptures unfolds throughout the school, with a major new artwork situated right at School‘s entrance.
