The InPractice evenings are hosted by the Royal Academy as an opportunity for disabled artists and others that would face barriers accessing the art world to share their work in front of an audience.
Particupating in these evenings has helped me greatly by giving me the opportunity to share my work and ideas and to receive feedback from the audience.
These evenings and are held approximately four times a year.
Each artist is given ten minutes to present their work. As I am mute the information about my work in presentations that I have done has been incorporated into my PowerPoint slide presentation,. As opposed to an oral commentary the text appeared at reading speed alongside each image During the questions from the audience I wrote my answers in a notebook and one of the organisers read out my responses to the audience.
It was wonderful to share my work during InPractice presentations and to hear and see the presentations of the other artists.
The next InPractice Evening will be on 31st January 2020
