Photoworks is supporting an opportunity for a neurodiverse adult to create new photographic work. It is specifically for a neurodiverse adult with varying levels of additional needs, including those who may be non-verbal or require complex support. The commission is open to individuals for whom photography is central to their artistic practice.
Photoworks is keen to support individuals who may not have an advocate or platform for their creative work, for example, people who might be isolated from accessing art opportunities.
All costs associated with developing ideas and producing new artwork and exhibition will be covered. Additional funds are available to provide creative support or mentoring throughout the commission process. There will also be an opportunity for the work to be included in an exhibition at Phoenix Brighton who are supporting Photoworks’ new programme ‘In Focus’.
‘In Focus’ includes a new commission, photography clubs and public events designed for neurodiverse communities. It is part of a wider programme called EXPLORERS; comprising awareness-raising activity, commissions, exhibitions, seminars and events developed by Project Art Works in partnership with Photoworks and other cultural partners, with and for neurodiverse communities, placing them at the heart of social, civic and cultural activity.
