Event description

Description

Project Art Works (UK) open our eyes and senses to a world of difference in a seminar that illuminates the rich creative territory of neurodiversity.

About

This seminar will open discussions on making art with, by and for people who have complex needs, embracing rights, personalisation and the rich narrative territory of difference.

The event is for neurotypical and neurodiverse artists and makers, curators, cultural education/engagement professionals, care agencies, cultural, health and social care policy makers and anyone interested in new ways of thinking about diversity and the different ways in which we perceive and inhabit the world.

A survey of projects including innovative, collaborative investigations of built space and their impact on people who are highly sensitive to sensory and environmental stimuli will provide the basis for discussions that explore:

+ The ‘unknowability’ of another person’s experience of the world, especially if they are unable to communicate using language;

+ Collaborative, artworks informed by different states of being in and seeing the world;

+ Opportunities for audience response and Q&As on creative collaboration and inclusive curatorial programming;

+ Working with the support systems surrounding those with complex needs in order to achieve relevant and transformational connection between care and art.

This project is supported by ACE, Arts Council England.
