Closing Date: 8 January 2016
The Dis/Ordinary Architecture Project
Are you interested in using your artistic practice towards creatively improving the design of the buildings and places? Would you like to find out more about projects that start from the creativity of disabled artists to develop models of new practice for built environment education and professions? We have up to five places available for involvement in the initial and final events of an ACE-funded project “Disabled Artists making Dis/Ordinary Spaces.”
This project is piloting three disabled artist-educator partnerships, to test out some ideas in existing architectural and interiors courses. We would like to invite disabled artists who have not yet been involved in this kind of work to be part of our overall discussion and review process.
The initial event is at Tate Modern on Saturday 14th January 2017 from 1.30 – 5.00, whilst the final event will also be a half-day, sometime at the end of May/beginning of June. We can pay travel and and any access costs, but there is no fee.
The Dis/Ordinary Architecture Project has developed out of a group called Architecture Inside-Out, co-founded by disabled artist Zoe Partington and architectural writer, Jos Boys that ran from 2007 – 2009. We are now planning to take our activities forward in a variety of creative ways that provide opportunities for, and build the capacity of, disabled artists to work in this area.
