You are invited to ‘It’s all in the detail’: A seminar with Disability Research Edinburgh
Thursday 5th November, 4-5.30pm
Room LG.09 in the David Hume Tower, Edinburgh University, George Square, Edinburgh EH8 9JX
The talk will look at some of Artlink’s Ideas Team approaches emerging from one to one work with people with profound learning disabilities at Cherry Road Day Centre in Bonnyrigg, the impact of the work on the individual and their care structures and its wider relevance to understanding and supporting people with learning disabilities.
Ideas Team is an Artlink research project that explores the inner worlds of people with profound learning disabilities and seeks to re-interpret those worlds through differing art forms. Its aim is to painstakingly observe the uniqueness of the individual’s world in order to build an awareness of that individual’s world seeking outcomes that have a positive impact on the individual’s quality of life.
At a time of cutbacks we need to think more creatively about the ways we provide support for very vulnerable people, ensuring access to innovative developmental work as a well as basic care.
Artist Steve Hollingsworth and Cherry Road Centre Manager Liz Davidson look at the impact of Artlink’s ideas team on the individual and their care structures and its wider relevance to understanding and supporting people with learning disabilities.
