Welcome to Six Speak, an exhibition featuring artwork by six learning disabled artists based in the UK. All of these artists responded to an open call – how does being an artist support the aims of self-advocacy? Through video, painting, illustration, collage and poetry, these artists provide valuable insight into their experiences of issues such as housing, protest, support and choice-making, demonstrating the important role that art can play in advocacy, communication and expression.
To navigate around this digital exhibition, you can use the 'next guide point' button to move through the gallery. Alternatively, you can press the drop down menu 'go to the guide point' button and select which artist's work you would like to see. You can find descriptions of the artist's work on the virtual walls and their biographies in the pop up boxes.
