15 - 20 July
Throughout the year, students taking place in Get the Message, from Village School, Brent, The Bridge School, Islington and Swiss Cottage School, Camden looked at the theme of ‘the stage’ as a site for exploration. This exhibition presents the work they produced with artists Emma McGarry and Adam Walker and marks the end of a two year mentoring programme for artists. A series of public events accompanies the exhibition.
From 17 – 20 July, visitors can take an enhanced 45 minute audio tour of the Get the Message exhibition, suitable for blind and partially-sighted audiences. Audio guides and headphones are available for free from the Bookshop.
Get the Message is a collaborative project between young people with learning disabilities, teachers and artists. The project aims to challenge perceptions of disability as a limitation through collaborative activities which champion all forms of communication and self expression. Through encounters with contemporary art practice both in galleries and working with artists, Get the Message offers innovative approaches to working with young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
