  • Art of Freedom Pop-Up

    The Art of Freedom Pop-Up Exhibition, D.verCity Disability, Deaf and Outsider Arts Festival, Preston Guild 2012

    The majority of the artwork in this exhibition was made as part of the art project ‘Doing it Ourselves’. Volunteers from Lancashire Centre for Independent Living and Disability Equality North West supported each other in creating artworks for the exhibition.

    The Social Model of Disability is very relevant to this exhibition.

    “ . . . a way of describing the discrimination experienced by disabled people in living an independent life in society. Society disables people who have impairments because the way it has been set up prevents disabled people taking part in everyday life.”

    “The ‘Doing it Ourselves’ Project gave me the opportunity to try out new skills and  . . .  express my thoughts on independence with support and how it makes me feel. It gave me inspiration to express myself.”

    “You only get one bite of the Cherry, if you want something just go for it!!”

    Jane Titherington, artist and participant

    Additional Artworks are on loan from the Deafway Collection of Artwork by Deaf Artists.

    The exhibition was displayed in a shop window in Preston’s Guildhall shopping Arcade between 31st Aug  – 10th Sep 2012. Open Evening took place on Wed 5th Sep 5.30-6.30. British Sign Language interpreters and Braille transcriptions were available on the night.
