ActionSpace has been invited to be part of an International Summit on learning disability arts organised by Project Ability in Glasgow, Scotland from 4-6 March.
Led by Project Ability and taking place at Trongate 103, the Summit brought together the most exciting and progressive artists and studios; people who are working at the highest level creatively, ethically and innovatively to celebrate and share ideas, discuss and bench-mark quality, exchange knowledge and provide opportunities for networking, peer support and peer learning.
The attending studios were Arts Project Australia (Australia), Venture Arts (UK), Action Space (UK), Inuti (Sweden), KCAT (Ireland), Atelier 5 (Germany), Celf O Gwmpas (Wales), In-Definite Arts (Canada), Kaarisilta (Finland), Nina Haggerty Centre (Canada).
The three day workshop was for the artists and run by the artists: they directed the content, delivered workshops, led the discussion and made art. ActionSpace was represented by our artist Thompson Hall, Co-Director Sheryll Catto and Artist Facilitator Lisa Brown.
