We are delighted to announce that our Conjunction exhibition will run from Monday 9th November to Thursday 19th November at Headway ArtSpace in Blyth.

Part of our New Worlds project funded by Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts, Conjunction is an immersive installation which combines soundscape from sound artist Jack Burton with projections from Alison Walton-Robson.

The exhibition is a reflection on the creative journey of Learning Disabled artists, who have been exploring and challenging perceptions of their contribution to mainstream art and culture through their involvement in our New Worlds Project.

New Worlds aligned with our Come Together Project, funded by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities, offers Northumberland a comprehensive, high quality artistic programme which champions and supports the full participation of learning disabled artists in the cultural life of their communities.

Alison Walton-Robson, Creative Director at Headway Arts explains: ‘with Conjunction, we are using space as a metaphor and invite the viewer to take time to listen and look beyond their usual horizons, to think about our imagery and question their own expectations. We are creating an intimate space within Headway ArtSpace for this to happen – an interesting platform for learning disabled creatives to be seen, talked about and their voices heard.’

If you would like to see how our co-creative approach works and witness the real sense of ownership, achievement and pride that our learning disabled artists feel about their work, book in to see Conjunction.
