Leah Jones and Jade French

Leah Jones and Jade French have been creative collaborators since 2013. Through their unique creative partnership, they produce inclusive, critically engaged bodies of work investigating the intersection of art and activism, bringing Leah’s expertise in art and lived experiences of learning disability and self-advocacy together with Jade’s academic background in curation and skills in creative facilitation. They have delivered a range of inclusive creative projects including exhibitions, publications and large-scale public workshops for institutions including Bluecoat (2017) Tate Liverpool (2017), Catalyst Science Discovery Centre & Museum (2019), Disability & Society (2019) and The Brindley (2019). Together, they are interested in exploring the relationship between artists with learning disabilities and their facilitators and ways to challenge assumptions on the roles that learning disabled people can play in arts and culture.
