What's On

Cosmologies of Care with Project Art Works

We all rely on the care of others at some point in our lives yet care is largely invisible, hard to articulate, overlooked and very often undervalued.

Covid has brought into sharp focus how important circles of support are for ourselves and each other.

This event is free and taking place in the Turner Prize exhibition space.

Exhibition tickets are still required and can be booked here.

Cosmologies of Care is a day of drawing and mapping personal testimonies of caregivers, caring relationships both paid and unpaid and the multiple interdependencies of our lives.

Through conversations facilitated by Project Art Works’, we will create a series of drawings making visible the patterns of caring and circles of support. 

This event will take place within studio space of Project Art Works Turner Prize 2021 exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum. Please be aware that this is a public space.

To access the exhibition you will need to pre book a free ticket to the Turner Prize 2021 exhibition by following the link above. For more information or to make us aware of any particular requirements please email martin@projectartworks.org.

 

About the Support Collective

Alongside our studio programmes Project Art Works leads the Support Collective. This is a friendly informal group of people with lived experience of disability, family carers, support workers, personal assistants and people working in health and social care. We meet regularly to share information and experiences, take part in free training, and support each other. We collectively share the aim of working towards person-centred, accountable and inclusive models of support and care, protecting the rights of people with support needs.

The Support Collective is free to join, email esther@projectartworks.org

About Project Art Works

Project Art Works is a collective working at the intersection of art and care to create the conditions where people with complex support needs can work independently and collaboratively to produce paintings, drawings, sculptural objects and film.

The collective is made up of 40 neurodivergent artists, as well as artists, activists, families and carers, who work together in their Hastings studio to develop long-term supportive and creative relationships.

Their practice spans art, support and activism.

Themes of human connection and what it reveals about identity and how we view each other is explored in their work.
