For a week Project Art Works will take over the Autograph gallery to produce a series of encounters with people who have complex support needs. Members of the public are invited to visit the gallery on Sat 4 November and Sat 11 November 2017 to experience two different installations, which will evolve out of the week’s activities.
“From the fact that people are very different it follows that, if we treat them equally, the result must be inequality in their actual position, and that the only way to place them in an equal position would be to treat them differently.” - Justice, edited by Michael J Sandel.
Please note that the gallery is only open to the public on these two Saturdays:
Saturday 4 November, 12 - 6pm Project Art Works will create an installation of films, objects and spaces ready to be used in creative action.
Saturday 11 November, 12 - 6pm The outomes from the weeks’ workshops will be showcased: films, ideas, materials and constructed spaces.
Project Art Works is working with Autograph ABP on EXPLORERS, a three-year programme of art, wilderness investigations and conversation in partnership with neurodiverse communities and cultural organisations across the UK and in Australia.
Taking place against a backdrop of increased hardship and intolerance towards vulnerable people, EXPLORERS is positively increasing awareness of the extraordinary contribution neurodiverse artists and makers bring to art and culture. Project Art Works is one of the UK’s leading visual artist-led organisations working with people who have complex needs and the people, systems and services that support them.
Partners include: Autograph ABP, De La Warr Pavilion, Fabrica, MK Gallery, Photoworks, Tate Liverpool, East Sussex County Council, Hastings Borough Council, South East Museum Development Programme, The Forestry Commission, UNSW, National Institute for Experimental Arts Project
Art Works received a major award to deliver EXPLORERS from the Arts Council England's Ambition for Excellence programme
