Following its launch in spring 2021, Danielle Teale’s Collective IDentity Project, working with dancers with Parkinson’s, will tour an exhibition, Who we are now, and then… as it makes a return to in-person activity.

The curated exhibition of visual art, photography and film work sharing perspectives on identity from the lives of dancers with Parkinson’s will feature three commissioned artists who will present new creations alongside photographic work captured in dancers homes by Sara Hibbert and the screening of a new documentary film directed by Teale and Jaka Skapin.

The commissioned artists are Emma Brown, a visual artist with a focus on printmaking and illustration, Edwina Kung, a fine artist who explores how people respond to their surroundings to make meaningful relationships, and David Armes, who works with letterpress and focuses on print, language and geography.

Launching during Libraries Week (4–10 October), the exhibition will tour to Poplar Union, East London (3–19 October), Wimbledon Library, South West London (30 November—11 December), Fleetwood Library, Lancashire (8–27 January), The Point, Eastleigh (5–18 February) and Colchester Library, Essex (4–29 March).

A smaller adapted version will also tour to nine venues in areas in which the CID Project currently works and a digital version will launch during the autumn. There will also be a full events programme including talks, workshops and insight evenings.
