RBSA and Midlands Art Papers

Last week saw the launch of the latest edition of Midlands Art Papers (MAP) at The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry, celebrating some of the innovative projects happening across the region. With contributions from RBSA Gallery’s Natalie Osborne and Jennifer Wilbur, this special issue focuses on Inclusion, Disability and Access in the Arts.

RBSA collaboration highlighted at event.

The final phase of RBSA’s ongoing collaboration with Sense - a charity dedicated to improving lives for people living with complex disabilities, was highlighted through guest speakers from art organisation Ha, Andrea Hannon and Rob Hamp NWA. They’ve been working with Sense art-maker Stuart and Sense charity shops across the West Midlands to create interactive sculptural installations that will be exhibited at Sense TouchBase Pears early next year. Titled #Re-Store, this phase has linked charity shops, customers and Sense service users through an ambitious programme of arts interactions. Talking on issues such as eliminating barriers to working practices for artists and makers with additional needs and employing a flexible working practice on the project raised thought-provoking questions amongst the audience made up of artists, gallery and museum professionals, academics and students, with conversations continuing after the event.
