First Performance and Talk is from Artist, Skye Shadowlight on Friday 9th of August. Starts at 8pm at the David Wright Gallery = “SHADE SCHOOL” Installation, Video, Performance. 'SHADE SCHOOL is a large scale art installation that I built from found objects in 2015. It began as one desk but as the story kept unfolding I added another and another. Now, I have an entire Victorian Classroom worth of work, with each piece telling a unique and individual story. In 2013 my child, who has autism explains that her teacher has been putting her under the desk as a punishment. He said that she liked it there because it was not too bright, and because she doesn’t like noise. Like a dog, the only child in the class sitting under the teacher’s desk for being naughty. My child often misunderstands things by taking them too literally. The teacher everyday would call the girls, boys and the boys, girls as a joke. All of the children laugh at his silly mistake. My child felt he was misunderstanding her as everyday she explained that she was not a boy. This just added to her distress. She would cry and they would laugh at her inability to be flexible. He continued and so did the “bad behaviour”.“Under the desk!” These are just some of the disgusting way that mainstream school were getting it wrong for my child and what drove me to create this emotive work. The school were screaming for inclusion at every turn, yet not training the staff to understand my child’s needs. A too common story. A archaic school setting for modern day disabled child. I invite you to attend SHADE SCHOOL Art Installation including video and performance. ' Skye Shadowlight Children can attend the workshops under supervision of an adult* Workshops on Saturday 10th of August - 10 am start in The Art School at Artsmill.

The sale has been organised by their social workers, the young trainee Fliss and the ex-agoraphobic volunteer, Gwenda. As Margaret, Bell-Bell and Katrina prepare to meet the public, armed with the suits of a deceased husband, old sequinned show dresses, a standard lamp, and other bric-a-brac, nerves run high, but a sensitive portrait of the group emerges.
