“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. Oxford University Press, Inc. 2007
For a week Project Art Works will take over the exhibition space of Autograph ABP with a series of events.
Members of the public are welcome to visit the space on Saturday 4 November and Saturday 11 November 2017 to experience two very different installations.
Saturday 4 November
Prior to creative action, Project Art Works will create a space for film, objects and spaces ready to be used.
During the week, a series of ENCOUNTERS will occur with people with complex needs and learning difficulties. The work will feed into and inform the look of the next open day.
Saturday 11 November
Post creative action will showcase film, ideas, spaces, materials and constructed spaces, all outcomes from the weeks’ workshops.
Project Art Works is working with Autograph 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
