Northamptonshire adults with learning, physical and sensory disabilities will get to experience a digital art exhibition which highlights hidden stories of disabled people.

Members from Teamwork Trust, a Northamptonshire-based charity which supports adults with mental health needs and other disabilities, are currently helping to develop an ambitious Corby arts project by artist Jason Wilsher-Mills – a project funded by Arts Council England which is due to be unveiled later this year.

As a thank you, Jason has invited members to visit his previous ‘Brave Boy Billy’ exhibition at the Tate Modern’s ‘Ghosts in the Machine’ installation in London on 2nd March.

Jason said: “I wanted to invite the members of Teamwork Trust to show my thanks for their involvement in my exciting ‘Corby Totems’ project where I am creating two unique interactive sculptures which will allow people to interact physically with art by using a tablet or smartphone to release animation and audio. The projects also use augmented reality apps and music, which is being composed especially for this project.

“During their trip to the Tate, Teamwork Trust members will get to use a range of digital media, iPads and 3D printing to see powerful digital images such as chromosomal butterflies and wheelchair rugby players, and listen to young disabled people talk about their disabilities. They will also get to experience a series of other workshops, performances and talks that all explore and challenge assumptions about disability in the arts during their visit.”

Caroline Prior, Education and Communication Officer, Teamwork Trust said: “The members have loved working with Jason to develop his Corby arts project and are really looking forward to their trip to the Tate Modern. As a charity we are committed to ensuring that everyone gets access to the same chances, choices and opportunities - whatever their individual needs or abilities and, as the Ghosts in the Machine exhibition represents those with disabilities, our members will really get a lot from their visit. We are delighted to have been invited and to be involved with Jason’s important work.”

Teamwork Trust has centres in Corby, Wellingborough and Kettering.
