ActionSpace ran Independence through Art in partnership with The Camden Society and the October Gallery. The aim was to develop a model for an accessible life skills course, using visual arts activities as a tool for learning through doing. The target group was adults with all types and levels of learning disabilities, particularly those with limited verbal skills.
ActionSpace’s specialist artist tutor worked with a life skills tutor from The Camden Society to develop and run the course. A steering group, including two learners, advised on the course model, monitored progress and gave feedback. Two volunteer session assistants supported the learners during sessions.
