Residential Events at Baltic

Published by on

Alongside the exhibition Residential at Baltic, Project Art Works will deliver a programme of workshops for local people, families and caregivers. A studio installation next to the main space will host a series of collaborative events that bring partners and collaborators, audiences and artists together in creative production. This programme follows awareness raising and relationship building in the North East of England which we have been engaged in the last year.

What is the role of cultural institutions in solving societies problems?

Terrains of care explores the intersections between art and care in Spain and the UK through artistic practices that operate in the converging terrains of complex care needs, disability and neurodivergence.

Examining and challenging conventional notions of care by looking at the intersections between communities and social systems of care, which simultaneously enable and disable people.

Explorers Final Event 2023
How can cultural institutions evolve into more caring and inclusive spaces?

28 – 29 November 2023
Booking information:

Explorers is a national programme which increases the visibility and presence of neurodivergent artists in contemporary art, creating pathways for cultural organisations to deepen their understanding, and commit to, inviting artists and their carers into their spaces as producers and collaborators.

This event will celebrate the culmination of five years of the Explorers project and the transformation in the representation of neurominorities in art and culture generated through its partnerships and actions.

Residential Review
Wednesday 21 February 2024
Further information:

This event will explore the impact of the Project Art Works exhibition and collaborative workshops included in Residential as it draws to a close on 25 February 2024.

Social care processes place value on people and their abilities, through complex and sometimes adversarial systems of assessment and review. These then determine the care that people receive through local or national frameworks of support. This event takes a similar approach to looking at the cultural and social value of exhibitions for and by neurominorities.

Residential forms part of Explorers, a national programme of art and conversation generating productive and creative collaborations between cultural organisations artists and paid and unpaid caregivers. Explorers aims to increase visibility and representation of neurominorities in society, art and culture.

Explorers is supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
