DISADVANTAGED - Swipe right to read my thoughts on this term, which is regularly used in education and charities in England , and how it provides an intellectual background to some of my artwork.
Thanks to all the @shadesofnoir team and @unioftheartslondon for including my work in their 'Discourse the Power of Language and Communication' journal which has just been published online via @issuu .
This painting* is a taster of the artwork and writings from my ongoing 'State of Education' project. I share the various strands of my work which I am currently working on in the article.
Happy to be part of this body of work joining other contributors, with differing views, who explore the use of language and it's relationship to power.
* My painting is entitled 'SEND' which stands for Special Educational Needs and Disability, referring the numerous codes used in education to identify or refer to the needs of SEND pupils.
If you fancy a read, check out more information on the codes in:
'Special educational needs and disability code of practice:
0 to 25 years
Statutory guidance for organisations which work with and support children and young people who have special educational needs or disabilities'
