Blurb/Shorttext:
The current policy shift is toward a more inclusive society where people considered socially disadvantaged are no longer denied access to opportunities in education and employment. However it is clear that inclusion as a practice has far from been assimilated into our social structures. This book provides a model through which participation in the visual arts can be made more widely accessible. The core thinking is based on the creative experience of seven intellectually disabled people. The process used has been conceptualised as collaboration, as it involves the creative input of both the participants and facilitating artist. Each encounter has been de- constructed with a view to discovering the key elements which precipitate the artwork. Theoretical models used are the social model of disability which locates the disabling factors in environments and structure and not in people alongside post-structuralist theories which afford a re- consideration of difference. .
