S P A C E # 5 in the series of work created during the 'Making Space' project.
The ‘Making Space’ project offers multi-sensory creative arts workshops for people with learning disabilities. The sessions allow participants to explore a creative world, where communication becomes a possibility. It is a journey of expression, through the experimentation of various and unique materials, techniques and art forms. The process of making, inventing, and creating, provides therapeutic elements in a way that participants might not have experienced before. Each week brings new experiences, and ultimately offers the chance for people to achieve and develop with their peers, using art as their language. We provide support and encouragement in creative development each session, and build on skills such as confidence and communication, social skills, practical skills, motivation and relaxation. Making space serves people who are currently isolated or restricted in independence and interaction. It not only offers a sense of freedom and belonging, but is the start of a social and creative adventure for each individual who joins us.
