Outsider Art; a label given to art created by artists with no formal training, a large subset of which are artists with intellectual disabilities. There's a network of galleries dedicated to such artists across the country, called creative spaces, workers of which are gathering in Wellington for an annual conference run by Arts Access Aotearoa later this week. There's an exhibition running at the same time at Wellington's Alpha Gallery. Bryan Crump went to meet the organisers and some of the artists.
