An exhibition designed by leading UK artist Jason Wilsher-Mills proved the perfect day out for our service users this month.

A group of more than 50 attended the official opening of the artist’s #ArgonaltsInLove exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. This big, bold and bright exhibition focuses on disability and celebrates the communities Jason has been working with – including our very own service users here at Teamwork Trust.

We have been working with Jason, who uses iPads to create bright, celebratory works that explore the themes of disability, for several years.

Service user Paul summed the trip up beautifully: “It was an incredible day. We felt like royalty. The exhibition was amazing and we love working with Jason. Amazing food, wonderful staff, beautiful views and a great exhibition. Thank you everyone.”

For the exhibition Jason’s digital drawings are translated into huge inflatable works as well as human-sized fibreglass sculptures.

All the pieces were made in collaboration with learning disabled groups across the UK, whose stories are intertwined with the artist’s own. Jason’s pieces are described as ‘acts of activism that are visually captivating and use their joyfulness to begin serious conversations’.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a huge inflatable sculpture which draws attention to the Changing Places campaign for fully accessible toilets to be installed in all large public venues.
