Learners from Village School in Brent, The Bridge School in Islington and Swiss Cottage School in Camden have been taking part in an exciting collaborative art project  called ‘Get the Message’ with Camden Arts Centre. Samples of their work produced with artists Emma McGarry and Adam Walker will go on display at the centre from the 17th to the 20th of July.

Visitors can take an enhanced 45 minute audio tour of the Get the Message exhibition, suitable for blind and partially-sighted audiences. Audio guides and headphones are available for free from the Bookshop.

Artist Adam Walker will also give a talk about the work produced by the students on Friday the 18th of July at 2pm. STAGETEXT will be providing live speech-to-text services alongside this talk, increasing its accessibility for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. Please book a Hard of hearing ticket so that we know how many text devices to provide on the day, and be in touch with our Bookshop on 020 7472 5500 to inform us of any other access requirements.

Get the Message is a collaborative project between young people with learning disabilities, teachers and artists. The project aims to challenge perceptions of disability as a limitation through collaborative activities which champion all forms of communication and self-expression. Through encounters with contemporary art practice both in galleries and working with artists, Get the Message offers innovative approaches to working with young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
