About the Bella Room

The Bella room, situated in the National Centre for Creative Learning is a dedicated, interactive space for students with specific learning needs to explore the work of contemporary artists. Each year, an artist will be commissioned to make an environment suitable for young people with specific needs.

In 2014, artist collective Brown Council were commissioned to recreate the Bella Room. Brown Council’s Jackson Bella Room Artist Commission transforms the space into an immersive and interactive performance ‘funhouse’ designed to be both accessible and stimulating for young people with specific needs. The work draws on a diverse range of sources, including the histories of performance art, absurdist theatre and children’s television programs such as Pee-wee’s Playhouse and Mulligrubs. Learn more about the Brown Council’s Jackson Bella Room Artist Commission.
