In a diverse society coming together in meaningful ways with people who differ – linguistically, bodily, religiously or ethnically – is one of the most urgent challenges facing civil society today.
In this arts-based research discussion we will begin to both address and reflect on this matter and on what arts based forms of dialogue and exchange can achieve for society in the 21st century. Asking: What does the future of inclusion look like? And what are the questions for the future that need to be addressed?
The session will involve a series of facilitated ‘creative conversations’ with people who work across a range of relevant fields of interest from education to arts funding and policy.
With discussion inspired by the insights and aesthetics of learning-disabled artists and their collaborators however we hope to go beyond traditional themes associated with discussions of Disability and Outsider art. The insights and aesthetics of learning-disabled artists and their collaborators will be brought to bear on this question.
The discussion will be followed by a celebration event from 16.00–17.00 for Inclusive Arts Practice and Research: a critical manifesto by Alice Fox and Hannah Macpherson. Inclusive Arts Practice and Research: a critical manifesto a Routledge, 2015 publication, represents the emerging field of creative practice across all the arts. It presents a radical call for collaboration on equal terms and will be an invaluable resource for anyone studying, researching or already working within this dynamic new territory
