Our plan is to exhibit artists’ responses to people with complex learning disabilities in the context of a contemporary art exhibition. The exhibition and series of associated talks and events will take place in 2019, aimed at all audiences, regardless of difference. It will be an ambitious meeting of minds, informing and inspiring new thinking about different ways of being.
It will be the first exhibition of its kind and will involve a completely different approach to making, showing and interacting with the art work .
What follows are some examples of the ideas that will inform the final artworks.
These projects explored how artists working with people with complex disabilities could use their knowledge and experience and collaborate with others, who do not have experience of workng with people with complex learning disabilities. What transpired was a series of ideas for the resdesign of the day centre.
