EXPLORERS 2019 National Conference
25th Jun 2019
Join Project Art Works at the newly reopened MK Gallery in Milton Keynes for the EXPLORERS conference: Art. People. Care. Be part of a collaborative, inclusive and progressive event examining rights, institutional empathy and the practice of artists with complex needs. The day will include presentations, case studies, participative workshops, creative practice and non-verbal communication.
The full programme will include contributions from the art and social care sectors and will be announced in September 2019.
This event is aimed at curators, arts commissioners and professionals, academics and artists working across socially engaged fields such as rights, education and health, and those working in the social care sector and neurodiverse communities – regardless of what stage you are at in your career or practice.
Taking place against a backdrop of increased hardship and intolerance toward disabled people, the aim of EXPLORERS is to develop positive relationships between cultural organisations and the social care sector and to reposition people who have complex needs at the forefront of mainstream culture. The programme led by Project Art Works is taking place with multiple partners and galleries including CVAN SE network members Fabrica, De La Warr Pavilion, MK Gallery and Photoworks.
Bookings for this event will be launched in July 2019, please save the date for now – Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 November at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes.
