CoCreART Laboratories – opportunity for five visiting artists
As part of our dynamic CoCreART programme, we are looking for five visiting artists from all disciplines to work alongside five learning disabled artists from Headway Arts. Successful applicants will co-create new shared work across a variety of art forms and equally explore each other’s processes, skills, influences, culture and practice.
The artists will work across a variety of art forms within five short but intensive laboratories using Headway Arts’ unique award-winning CoCreART methodology which has been developed over 25 years of pioneering inclusive practices, supported by Arts Council England.
All artists will present their dialogues for discussion at The CoCreART Symposium and Networking Lunch on Friday 26th July 2019 at Headway ArtSpace, Blyth.
The laboratories will be supported and directed by Allie Walton-Robson, Creative Director, Headway Arts and all visiting artists will receive a Commissions for Exchange bursary of £250.
