Feeling at Home



Feeling at Home: photos by people with learning disabilities sharing their experiences of living in group homes.

This exhibition shows work from 19 photographers with learning disabilities from across Brighton and London. They have been meeting together in small groups to reflect on what helps them feel at home, and what gets in the way of this. The exhibition provides an opportunity for the public to see the world through the eyes of people with learning disabilities, and to reflect on their own responses to this work.

With community arts organisation Quiet Down There, the photographers have curated this exhibition of their work and invite you to engage with the topic of ‘feeling at home’.

This exhibition is part of the Feeling at Home research study, funded by the National Institute of Health Research’s School for Social Care Research. We have used photovoice, a research method where people tell their stories, share their experiences and work towards improving their lives through photography.





The galleries at Phoenix Art Space are open Wednesday – Sunday, 11.00 – 17.00 during exhibition dates.
