Hi everyone,

The RBSA and Sense worked together on a pilot visual arts project to deliver 4 art workshops by 4 different RBSA artists to 5 Sense participants and their support workers.

Sense provided induction training to RBSA staff members and artists to help RBSA learn how to make practical art activities more accessible to individuals with MSI. The artists then planned and delivered their individual workshops, which included: clay sculpture, printmaking, construction sculpture, and mixed-media textiles weaving. Each workshop provided detailed information on how sessions could be developed further.

On 8 March: RBSA artists and Sense staff will share their findings from the collaborative project with individuals who have complex communication needs (e.g. deaf blindness). There will be time to have refreshments, network, listen to talks, and discuss the points made at the new Touchbase Pears Centre. Details and how to book are here:

I'll be there myself and happy to connect with people about the Disability Co-operative Network and inclusive practice in museums as service providers and a workforce.

With Best Wishes
