Exploring Curatorial Practice by Learning Disabled Artists as a Site for Self-Advocacy
Welcome to the website for Art as Advocacy, a practice-led PhD research project by Jade French in partnership with Halton Speak Out and Bluecoat, based in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds.
This website features the written thesis alongside an archive of project material organised via the thesis chapters located at the top of the page. Together with the thesis text, each chapter contains images, videos, transcripts, plans and hyperlinks illuminating the inclusive and participatory approaches underpinning the action-research project.
Over time, additional resources, publications and a summary video will be added to this website.
