M21 – Live Art Event From Medieval to 21st Century
The M21 Live Art Event on 5th and 6th May 2012 brought together disability arts organisations, disabled and deaf artists, producers and mainstream organisations to celebrate the inspiration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Held in the historic town of Much Wenlock, Shropshire, famous for being one of the birthplaces of the modern olympics, performances were held in the street, surrounding area and, within the Priory Hall. Renowned artists such as Tanya Raabe, Alan McLean, Simon McKeown, Sean Burn, Noëmi Lakmaier, Ann Whitehurst and the Disabled Avant-Garde explored (to name a few) climate change, country living and historic practices.
Vivid designed the website for M21 and was delighted to be invited to the event. DASH (Disability Arts in Shropshire) the project organisers had gone to great lengths to make the day special.
The artists exhibiting at the event recorded the day by posting their work on the M21 website. The visual diary would be a memento of the day with the lead up to the games.../back
