The Multi-Sensory Art Project (MSAP) is a collaboration between The Roche Court Educational Trust, Silverwood School and specialist artist-educators to provide creative, sensory experiences for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities. The multi-sensory activities and digital resources that we create are beneficial and available to all.
In 2023 project artists Emma Kerr and Rebecca Churchill will invite participants to join in with a
new multi-sensory story inspired by three sculptures at Roche Court Sculpture Park, all linked to the theme SHAPE SHIFTERS:
Kenneth Armitage ‘Richmond Oak’ (1985)
Barry Flanagan ‘Large Left-Handed Drummer’ (2008) and
Bill Woodrow ‘Celloswarm’ (2002)
The schools and organisations that are collaborating with us this year include Exeter House, Silverwood School, Hill House and The Sheiling Ringwood.
Props, music and suggested activities will be offered throughout and the story will
purposefully take a slow and contemplative pace, so we can absorb the unique
experiences, and explore individual responses to the objects and interactions.
