Alongside the exhibition Residential at Baltic, Project Art Works will deliver a programme of workshops for local people, families and caregivers. A studio installation next to the main space will host a series of collaborative events that bring partners and collaborators, audiences and artists together in creative production. This programme follows awareness raising and relationship building in the North East of England which we have been engaged in the last year.

What is the role of cultural institutions in solving societies problems?
Terrains of care explores the intersections between art and care in Spain and the UK through artistic practices that operate in the converging terrains of complex care needs, disability and neurodivergence.
Examining and challenging conventional notions of care by looking at the intersections between communities and social systems of care, which simultaneously enable and disable people.

Social care processes place value on people and their abilities, through complex and sometimes adversarial systems of assessment and review. These then determine the care that people receive through local or national frameworks of support.
This event takes a similar approach to looking at the cultural and social value of exhibitions for and by neurominorities.
Project Art Works invites those they have collaborated with over the course of the exhibition to join audiences, cultural professionals and artists to discuss the imapact of Residential. Conversations will review imapcts locally and nationally for those often excluded from cultural spaces.
Residential forms part of Explorers, a national programme of art and conversation generating productive and creative collaborations between cultural organisations artists and paid and unpaid caregivers. Explorers aims to increase visibility and representation of neurominorities in society, art and culture.
Explorers is supported by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
