What you’ll do

Join Dom Smith, journalist, musician, disability counsellor and activist, for a gallery tour and workshop inspired by ‘Jason and the Adventure of 254’.  

In collaboration with mixed-media artist Jay Sillence, Dom will highlight aspects of the exhibition that resonate with his experiences of disability, growing up in Yorkshire and living with cerebral palsy.  

After the tour, you can take part in a creative drawing workshop with Dom and Jay in the Studio. Using the themes of struggle, transition and formation, you’re invited to share your own experiences and motivations. All materials will be provided. 

The event will end with an informal question-and-answer session, where you’ll get the chance to chat with Dom and Jay.
