Meet our panelist:

Jason Wilsher-Mills – Bio

Jason was born in Wakefield, West Yorkshire in 1969. I am a disabled artist, who although traditionally trained as an oil painter, learned to embrace the pixel when I became disabled. This meant that the adoption of digital apparatus, as a tool for making art, was a pragmatic resolution to me not being able to make large work, as I had when able bodied. Previously I had taught for many years at one of the toughest prisons in the UK, HMP Leeds, where my art department won the prestigious Jerwood Community Arts Award. (A first for a prison)

 

David Lambert is Managing Director of cultural solutions UK. He has been involved in a vast range of eclectic and innovative artistic and cultural projects, programmes and interventions over the past thirty – five years.
