OutsiderXchanges is a collaborative visual arts project exploring inter-responsive visual arts practice. The project brought together 6 learning disabled artists and 6 emerging artists, to examine disability arts aesthetic and investigate its place within the contemporary visual arts world.
Running over 7 months, artists from Manchester and Gateshead/Newcastle will work together to make new work. Venture Arts is working in partnership with BALTIC Mill, Gateshead, Castlefield Galleries, Manchester and the Contemporary Visual Arts Network (CVAN) to build on experience and audiences.
Acclaimed artist Tanya Raabe-Webber will work with all the artists involved focusing on pairing the artists, building on their ideas, developing their knowledge of learning disability arts aesthetic and cultural identity and working in a new space.
