Illuminating the Wilderness is a new work made by Project Art Works’ artists Kate Adams and Tim Corrigan, in collaboration with artists Ben Rivers, Margaret Salmon, and Project Art Works’ artists and makers, their families and support teams. The film follows the shared experience of days spent together investigating a remote Scottish glen, as well as the pleasures and challenges of neurodiverse responses to the landscape. The explorers stay in lodges among trees and venture out to find a small island. They travel about in a convoy of 4×4 vehicles and share a night in a remote bothy under a crisp night sky. This gives way to torrential rain during the early morning retreat back to base. Moments of humour and tender consideration for each other are revealed as the film unfolds in and around the landscape and weather systems of the mountains.

 Complementing the film is an evolving installation of artwork made in collaboration with neurodiversepeople and groups from Social Care organisations across Merseyside including Natural Breaks, Options for Supported Living, Blue Room, and Thingwall Resource Centre.Initially a series of huge blank paper banners, the installation will be increasingly populated by drawings and paintings made by the groups as well as general visitors taking part in gallery workshops throughout the presentation.

Lindsey Fryer, Head of Learning, Tate Liverpool said: ‘We are delighted to collaborate with Project Art Works, an organisation that shares the same commitment as Tate to make arts and culture accessible to all.’
