Spark Arts for Children: Creative Curiosity

As part of the Spark Festival 2022, in January 2022 young disabled people from Ash Field Academy creatively joined forces with professional disabled and non-disabled artists Nikki Charlesworth and Pasha Kincaid to create an inclusive multi-sensory installation at their school.

Taking the festival theme of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, the installation incorporated the young people’s creative ideas of how they could take something from their school that was very ordinary and make it extraordinary. What did they come up with?
