Portrait Speaks Forum and Exhibition

Mapura Studios invites you to attend our Portrait Speaks forum and exhibition preview on Thursday 9 December.

This event is the culmination of a 17 week all inclusive pilot programme funded by the IHC Foundation for people of all abilities. The programme introduced participants to elements of drawing and painting in relation to portraiture; covering techniques, methodologies, use of media and art comprehension.

The programme, forum and exhibition have been designed to build personal and community awareness of disability issues, and will provide an opportunity for an in-depth conversation around the participants’ experiences of inclusivity in a creative environment.

This event is ideal for people working in the creative therapies, education, social services and community arts fields, and anyone interested in innovative arts programmes and social change.
