Material Conversations: Experiencing materials through an inclusive arts collaboration image

This fourth talk of the ‘Disability and the Cultural Sector’ seminar series will be given by Dr Tim Adlam, Maryam Bandukda and Caroline Wright, who will explore the meanings and values of experiencing materials through inclusive arts collaboration.
Material Conversations was created out of a collaboration between artist Caroline Wright, UCL researcher Maryam Bandukda, the East London based disability group ‘Beyond Sight Loss’ (BSL) and UCL academic Tim Adlam. Supported by the UCL Trellis community engagement funds, the team worked with BSL to explore the nature of materials and our responses to experiencing them through different senses. Caroline developed a collection of multi-sensory artworks, exhibited as Material Conversations, that enables the surprising experience of materials through sound, rhythm, sight and touch.
