ActionSpace, Project Ability and Venture Arts jointly possess over 100 years of experience nurturing creativity and creating opportunities for artists with learning disabilities and since first working together on a project in 2015, we have seen the value and reward of keeping in touch and supporting one another.
Now we are coming together with a unique virtual project ‘x3‘ showcasing artwork by artists across different mediums at a time when galleries are still closed, travel is restricted and opportunities to exhibit work are severely limited. Each organisation in turn is to host an exhibition showcasing work by one artist from each partner organisation, united by a chosen theme – a virtual project to keep up all connected and to share communities, creativity, optimism and aspiration.
The first ‘x3’ virtual exhibition, ‘Electric Dreams’, is inspired by the inner-world of dreamscapes and is curated by Venture Arts artists Daniel Elms and Sally Hirst. The show features the work of Daniel Elms (Venture Arts), Declan Leslie (ActionSpace) and Gary Turner (Project Ability).
