Inclusive Arts Practice and Research: A critical manifesto

Alice Fox, Hannah Macpherson

Research output: Book/ReportBook - authored


Inclusive arts describes 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 Alice Fox and Hannah McPherson interview artists, curators and key practitioners in the UK and US. The editors introduce and articulate this new practice, and situate it in relation to associated approaches. Fox and McPherson candidly describe the tensions and difficulties involved too, and explore how the work sits within contemporary art and critical theory. The book includes essays and illustrated statements, and has over 60 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 or already working within this dynamic new territory.
