The CoCreART Symposium and Networking Lunch

About 


The Symposium will explore the equity of process between disabled and non disabled artists. Through our Arts Council Funded ‘CoCreART’ programme we have brought together learning disabled artists with non disabled artists in ‘exchange laboratories’ where an equitable exchange of processes, influences, culture and practice have resulted in 5 unique pieces of work.

The artists have worked 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. They will present their work with dialogues for discussion at the Symposium at Headway ArtSpace on Friday 26th July 2019 at 1.45pm. A networking lunch will be provided from 12.30pm.

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

We hope you can join us for this very special event!
