Sonic Adventurers are a collective - comprising seven emerging artists with intellectual disabilities, and two mentoring established artists. The group is an initiative started by the artists with JOLT Arts.
Artists in the collective meet weekly to work on their practice with the focus of the collective being audio-visual work blended with visual art. Each of the artists has their own individual practice spanning a range of art forms including sound; visual art; video; writing performance and theatre.
“The Red Line is indicative of a danger point that we are all about to cross or a point of no return. There is mystery as we follow the trail of blood, not knowing what awaits us at the end. There is some fear and apprehension, like we have all experienced over the last 18 months during the pandemic.” The group has chosen to draw a line in the sand and make a stand.
