John Billam Resource Centre: We’ve Only Just Begun
9 May to 30 May at The Library at Willesden Green
This exhibition marks a three month journey undertaken by participants in an ActionSpace outreach project with John Billam Resource Centre, Brent.
ActionSpace supports the development of artists with learning disabilities and creates innovative projects for people with learning disabilities to engage with the visual arts. ActionSpace’s status as a sector leader within the UK has been recognised by Arts Council England in their 2015-18 National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) funding round, where they were one of only 68 organisations across all of England to be awarded a significant uplift in funding.
The John Billam Resource Centre delivers services for adults aged 18 to 65 with learning disabilities and is accredited by the National Autistic Society.
Working with experimental and imaginative approaches to making, the art presented in the exhibition documents the new territories these artists have explored in their processes.
