Scotland’s Learning Disability Week 2022 will take place from Monday 2nd – Sunday 8th May.
This year’s theme is ‘We all have human rights!’
Scottish Commission for People with Learning Disabilities (SCLD) have commissioned Project Ability artists Jonathan McKinstry and Cameron Morgan to create murals around the theme ‘We all have human rights’. Morgan and McKinstry worked with Project Ability tutor Jason Pyper to create 6 murals which can now be viewed at Project Ability, Glasgow. Inspired by the talks and activities lined up by SCLD for Scottish Learning Disability Week, the collaborators decided on six individual themes for their murals:
The right to be heard
The right to an education
The right to respect
A Safe Place to Call Home
The right to vote
The right to party
Although working alongside each other in the Project Ability studios for many years, this is the first time the two artists have collaborated on a project. It has been exciting to watch the large scale murals develop over the last few months and the final results are certainly no disappointment! The project has been a huge success and we are all excited to see what Morgan and McKinstry will work together on next!
We will be presenting one mural online each day of Scottish Learning Disability Week so keep an eye out to see them all!
‘The right to be heard’
‘The right to an education’
‘The right to respect’
‘A safe place to call home’
‘The right to vote’
‘The right to party’
This week will raise awareness of the importance of recognising and realising the human rights of people with learning disabilities.
