The Explorers Project
The Explorers project is a three year programme of awareness raising and encounter workshops, happenings, productions, commissions, exhibitions and seminars in collaboration with people who have complex needs and those who support them.
Taking place against a backdrop of increased hardship and intolerance toward disabled people, the aim is to develop positive relationships between cultural organisations and the social care sector and to reposition people who have complex needs at the forefront of mainstream culture.
The programme led by Project Art Works will take place at partner galleries across the country with Autograph ABP, Fabrica, De La Warr Pavilion, MK Gallery, National Institute for Experimental Arts UNSW, Photoworks and Tate Liverpool.
Project Art Works is an artist-led organisation that makes and promotes ART as a means of connection with and for people with complex needs. They collaborate with neurodiverse communities, galleries, health and social care agencies to promote inclusion in civic and cultural life.
EXPLORERS is funded by the Arts Council England Ambition for Excellence.
