does that include us? / yn cynnwys ni?

22 July - 24 September 2016

does that include us? is a multi-artform programme of events presented by artists, facilitators and activists, some who identify as disabled and some who don’t.

For the first part of the season, 22 July – 25 August, you are invited to participate in social gatherings, performances, practical activities, conversations and debates. Through these activities we will find innovative and experimental ways to promote discussion around the subjects of access, inclusion, empathy and diversity within the arts and the wider community.

The second part of the season, 2 – 24 September, will be an exhibition of documentary
material with an accompanying
exhibition of the paintings of Sargy Mann.

More information for individual events and amendments to the timetable, will be
published here throughout the programme.

This programme has been curated by Gail Howard.

30 July - 6 August
Opening event 29th July 6.30-9pm
Broadleaf Books, Abergavenny


Jeff Nuttall (1933-2004) was a prolific and influential poet, artist and musician. Best know for his seminal 1968 text Bomb Culture, Nuttall worked tirelessly across sculpture, painting, poetry and publishing as well as instigating early performance art, experimental theatre and ‘happenings’ in the U.K. In this exhibition, Nuttall’s books and publishing projects - including his seminal publication My Own Mag - will be brought together within a sculptural environment by artist Melissa Appleton.

Nuttall grew up in the Orcop Valley, Herefordshire and lived in the Black Mountains in later years. These distinct geographies in Nuttall’s life informed his fascination with the violent relationship between body and landscape that features strongly in his work.

The opening event on 29th July will feature music and readings of Nuttall's work by artists and poets including Ivor Davies, Ann Drysdale,Sam Hasler and Adam Horowitz.

Gathering #1: Empathy 11—4.30pm

Artist and performer Jonny Cotsen ‘Imagine you are walking through a park, you are looking at a baby in a pushchair crying, an elderly couple talking on a bench, the wind blowing the leaves in the trees, a dog barking, a group of teenagers playing football, a couple having a tearful argument, a person on a bike, another on the phone...then imagine all those unique individual sounds as a single hum. This is my world as a deaf person, this has been my life...trapped.’
Jonny Cotsen’s current work, as a facilitator and teacher, supports and enables deaf and disabled people to access the arts through education and engagement. Through performance, conversation and play, Jonny will encourage visitors to engage in an empathic experience, accessing the world through a deaf person’s eyes and ears. All welcome. BSL translated.

UNIT#1 Carl Slater, Miss America’s Trip to Technoland



23 July - 20 August
Preview 23 July 6-9pm


Carl Slater’s Miss America’s Trip to Technoland is a new installation work taking us on a mystical pilgrimage through mind alteration and the search for spiritual hallucinations.
Slater’s most recent work, concerned with undercurrents, motifs and music of a notorious sub-culture has taken the form of video, collage and sculpture. For this exhibition he has mapped out a new environment drawing the parallels between religion and rave culture. Utilising found footage and recordings from public and private archives Slater edits a mashup of sourced material, resulting in sensory overload.

Carl Slater is an artist based at KARST in Plymouth.
