AIM - Art in Motion
AIM consists of a group of artists who define themselves as learning disabled and as neurodiverse. We work in the public realm and provide opportunities for our artists to develop skills, knowledge and creativity through engaging in a range of artist-led projects. We share our work with a wide audience through exhibitions, presentations and screenings.
The projects we create are artist-led, providing opportunities for our artists to develop skills, knowledge and creativity. Our starting point in devising and developing projects is through making. For Everything and Nothing we have created art in the form of costumes that we wear as part of our intervention. We are passionate about the power of art to be more visible - be more active - to wear our art in public and to push the boundaries of what we do as a group, exploring new ideas. We aim to become more politicised and open up discussion about disability and art, recognising that lockdown has highlighted inequalities for disabled people.
