Inclusive Arts Practice and Research interrogates an exciting and newly emergent field: the creative collaborations between learning-disabled and non-learning-disabled artists which are increasingly taking place in performance and the visual arts.
In Inclusive Arts Practice and Research Alice Fox and Hannah Macpherson interview artists, curators and key practitioners in the UK and US. The authors introduce and articulate this new practice, and situate it in relation to associated approaches. Fox and Macpherson candidly describe the tensions and difficulties involved too, and explore how the work sits within contemporary art and critical theory.
The book inhabits the philosophy of Inclusive Arts practice: with Jo Offer, Alice Fox and Kelvin Burke making up the design team behind the striking look of the book. The book also includes essays and illustrated statements, and has over 100 full-colour images. Inclusive Arts Practice represents a landmark publication in an emerging field of creative practice across all the arts. It presents a radical call for collaboration on equal terms and will be an invaluable resource for anyone studying, researching or already working within this dynamic new territory.

A research discussion at Tate Modern bringing together practitioners and academics to explore issues around inclusive arts practice; in support of bringing forward new forms of dialogue to support diverse groups
In a diverse society coming together in meaningful ways with people who differ – linguistically, bodily, religiously or ethnically – is one of the most urgent challenges facing civil society today.
In this arts-based research discussion we will begin to both address and reflect on this matter and on what arts based forms of dialogue and exchange can achieve for society in the 21st century. Asking: What does the future of inclusion look like? And what are the questions for the future that need to be addressed?
The session will involve a series of facilitated ‘creative conversations’ with people who work across a range of relevant fields of interest from education to arts funding and policy.
