A Fairer Scotland at The Scottish Parliament, 18th June 2015.

To mark Learning Disability Awareness Week, The Scottish Parliament hosted an evening of fine art, dance and song. We were invited to transform the Garden Lobby, and installed a selection of paintings produced by artists attending our Aspire programme for people with learning disabilities. 

The work was much admired, and artists Cameron Morgan and Jonathan McKinstry were on hand to talk about their paintings and their studio practice.  Cameron and Jonathan are both accomplished artists and have exhibited widely - locally and internationally - and were honoured to show their work is such an esteemed setting.

Cameron said: ‘It was great. I enjoyed the all the performances and the dancing. Everybody loved it!’

Jonathan said:  ‘It was a transcendent experience! I enjoyed talking to people, and I’m getting better at talking in public.’
