Everyone at Trongate 103: Project Art Works

Project Art Works

For October’s Everyone @ Trongate 103 event on Thursday 6th October, we are very pleased to announce that Alison Digance, Deputy Director of Project Art Works in Hastings, will be our invited speaker.

Through a responsive and collaborative practice, Project Art Works conduct a wide range of visual art based projects with people who have complex and high support needs. The organization is artist led and its programmes of work embrace and address the social, cultural and political forces that both enable and disable children, young people, adults, families and carers affected by neurological impairment.

Alison will speak about Project Art Works’ current programme and their experience of working with people with complex disabilities as co-consultants on developing practice-led investigations of built space within contemporary visual arts environments. The talk will mainly focus on the processes involved in their current collaboration with M K Gallery (Milton Keynes Gallery), who are curating an exhibition of their work in December 2011. The collaboration is part of a strategic drive to share knowledge with the mainstream contemporary art sector about their work with severe neurological impairment , and particularly to drive forward inclusion of these participants in mainstream programming.

Thursday 6th October 2011, Project Ability Gallery, 1st floor, Trongate 103, Glasgow, G1 5HD. Note: the talk will be from 4pm – 5pm.
