Vice Chancellor PhD Scholarship – Challenging Outsider Art: how are artists with a learning disability informing contemporary art?

 

This is a brilliant opportunity for artists and creative academics to submit proposals for this very unique PhD exploring how the work of learning disabled artists is evolving and informing the contemporary arts world. We are co-sponsoring this Vice Chancellor PhD Scholarship with Manchester Metropolitan University.

 

This project explores the participation of people with learning disabilities in the world of contemporary arts. The aim is to understand how artists who until recently might have been called ‘outsider artists’ are collaborating within contemporary art and to consider the impact of this on arts practice and community connectedness.
