Patrick Lydon and some of his team at KCAT Art & Study Centre are invited to share their big ideas on Art & Life Learning involving an artist mentorship and studio programme for communities with special needs. Participants will consider how KCAT challenges the Insider/Outsider Arts debates.
KCAT is a multi-disciplinary Arts Centre dedicated to the fostering and nurturing of creative ambition and professional development in the arts. They believe that everyone, regardless of background, age, gender or ability should have access to a creative world – as students, participants, artists or audiences. KCAT does not have an artistic director. This decision is centred on the idea that the artists in the building are the engine that drives, motivates and steers our direction.
KCAT was founded in 1999 and has continued to grow, develop and evolve according to demand and need since then. The stability and assured continuity of KCAT means that they can maintain a constant presence in people’s lives. New students attending KCAT courses can realistically aspire to be a professional artist; in turn, the professional artists that we facilitate can develop ever more ambitious projects, collaborations and partnerships. KCAT is evolving and changing perceptions and misconceptions around arts, disability and participation
