Event description
FRONTLINEdance has partnered with Unlimited to celebrate disabled artists, connecting arts organisations and individuals in the Midlands.

About this Event

How do we go beyond tokenism, box-ticking and lip service, when it comes to supporting disabled artists? How can we create real equal opportunity in every creative space and avoid ‘all speech and no action’ approaches?

FRONTLINEdance has partnered with Unlimited to celebrate disabled artists, connecting up arts sector organisations and individuals based in Arts Council England’s Midlands Area. Join us for a day of provocations, discussions and encounters, in a relaxed environment, including showcasing of work by disabled artists.

Unlimited is a commissioning programme for work by disabled artists, delivered by Shape Arts and Artsadmin, with funding from Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales, and Spirit 2012. This event is part of a wider series of Unlimited Connects events in England and Wales.

This event has BSL interpreters and captioning, with step-free access, alternative seating/lying arrangements, and a quiet space. If you have any questions about access please contact harry@shapearts.org.uk, or call 020 7424 7330, where you can also complete this form over the phone.
