In Focus Opportunities

We are delighted to be working with Photoworks and Project Art Works to commission a neuro-divergent artist!

In Focus is a programme run by Photoworks – a charity that works across the UK to promote and develop contemporary photography, supporting artists to make new work and producing exhibitions and events.

In Focus is part of a wider programme called Explorers; comprising awareness-raising activity, commissions, exhibitions, seminars, and events developed by Project Art Works in partnership with Photoworks and other cultural partners, with and for neurodiverse communities, placing them at the heart of social, civic, and cultural activity.

This commission is an opportunity to make new artwork supported by the Photoworks team, which will be exhibited at Aspex in Spring 2024.

The commission is open to individuals for whom photography is central to their artistic practice and is specifically for a neuro-divergent adult with varying levels of additional needs, including those who may be non-verbal or require complex support. We are particularly keen to support individuals who may not have an advocate or platform for their creative work, for example, people who might be isolated from accessing art opportunities.

Deadline extended to: 10am, Monday 24 October 2022
