FUCK THE DIFFERENCE?
Join the Debate
A topic we discuss over and over here at LEVEL is whether we ‘Celebrate Difference’ or we actually want to ‘Fuck the Difference’? Do we want to create art only for and by those with learning disabilities? Or is our aim to create a LEVEL playing field? How does the knowledge of who’s created something change the way it is perceived and interpreted? We are trying to explore the relationships between cognition, art and value in the world of learning disabilities.
Through planning a programme of events, lectures and debates based around this subject for 2020 and beyond, we are aiming to challenge the value people place on art based on their existing prejudices.
Should we ‘Fuck the Difference’ when viewing, participating and creating art?
