Headway East London members return for the second round of 10 minute talks in Tate Modern Galleries.

Two more self taught artists, members of Headway East London and its ‘Submit to Love Studios’ art group, reflect on works in Tate Collections that have special meanings.

Lobna reflects on the piece by Kader Attia – Untitles (Ghardaïa).

Headway East London is a local charity supporting people affected by brain injury. They offer specialist support and services to survivors and their families, whilst also campaigning for grater awareness. They also make art, music, food and culture at their Hackney hub. Their vision is to create a community where people with brain injury are valued, respected and able to fulfil their potential.

Submit to Love Studios is home to a group of mostly self-taught artists who have all survived brain injuries. They work collectively in an open environment and help bring out the best in each other. Their mission is “discovery through art”, and the studio is based at charity Headway East London in Hackney.
This talk is happening during Action for Brain Injury Week, #ABIweek
