In Search of Spirituality
The project brought together a group of multidisciplinary British artists to create original pieces based on the theme of spirituality. More information will be added to this section shortly.
What we have achieved
Art was created through the artists’ contact with a group of people with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders. More information will be added to this section shortly. The project had three strands: The pieces created by the individual artists in their respective disciplines. A parallel experiential and skills-based arts educational programme for a group of people with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders. Access to and cooperation with almost twenty of London’s most important galleries and sites. The project took place over two years. As many of the participants had higher support needs the needed a longer time to engage with and respond to what were a new range of experiences in high profile galleries, meeting new people and the public. The group of participants continued to work and rehearse in public galleries, encouraging the public to comment on the development of the art. More information will be added to this section shortly.
We worked with ten established and emerging artists. Although the organisation requires that anyone who works with us attends a group to become familiar with the way in which we work, we do not work with artists who only work with people with learning disabilities.
Our artists included:
Anna Chen (poet), Glenys Johnson (painter), Sam Queen (opera singer), Spike Mclarrity (performance artist, a white rabbit, painter and carver), Saffron van Zwanenberg (musical director), Sharon Obiozor-Cantle (fashion designer)
