Irregular Arts Schools is a new research project exploring professional development opportunities for learning disabled artists in the Leeds City Region. It is co-developing and piloting different professional development opportunities with learning disabled artists from Pyramid, testing how existing structures such as artist-led spaces, universities, publishing and social care can better serve learning disabled individuals.
"Through practitioner-led research, this book presents original tools and approaches demonstrating the powerful potential of facilitators in creating change within museums, offering an essential roadmap for inclusive curatorial collaborations."
Emily Pringle, Head of Research, Tate
"This important book breaks new ground and makes a hugely valuable contribution to socially engaged thinking and practice in museums. It not only makes a vivid, compelling case for inclusive curating but provides practical approaches for taking this work forward."
Prof. Richard Sandell, Research Centre for Museums and Galleries, University of Leicester
