The BBC Suffolk news website has published an article covering United Response’s Six Degrees of Art scheme. The project puts forward six creative interpretations of six original photographs, using poetry, photography, film, music and sign-language and was the brain-child of staff and people with learning disabilities at our deaf services in Ipswich.

Neil Coote, who is supported by United Response, prompted this latest art scheme after setting up a community photography exhibition in 2009, entitled Disposable Technology.  For this he distributed 40 disposable cameras to local businesses and members of the public, for them to return, fully used, with technology-related images. 

After a tremendous response the scheme culminated with an exhibition at the St Nicholas Centre in Ipswich, where a panel of judges, including Neil, selected their favourite six pictures. These winning images then went on to form the basis of Six Degrees of Art.
