The CoCreART Symposium and Networking Lunch


Commissions for Exchange Laboratories is part of our dynamic ‘CoCreART’ programme which brings together five learning disabled artists from Headway Arts and five new visiting artists in an exchange of processes, 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.

The artists will present their dialogues for discussion at The CoCreART Symposium and Networking Lunch on Friday 26th July 2019 at Headway ArtSpace, Blyth. 

Tickets for this Symposium are FREE and lunch will be provided. To book your place please visit:
