Together! 2012 CIC

Together! 2012 CIC is led by locally based disabled artists under the artistic directorship of international artist Dr Ju Gosling aka ju90, and is creating a Paralympic cultural Legacy in East London by making the main Host Borough of Newham into an international centre of excellence for Disability Arts. Together! 2012 CIC has already received significant recognition for our work, most recently winning the first Rotary Stratford East London Community Heroes Award for Outstanding Contribution to Community Cohesion in June 2019.

With ongoing support from Arts Council England and The National Lottery Community Fund, we run a free year-round programme of creative workshops for disabled people and their companions led by mid-career artist Alison Marchant, and free disabled-led exhibitions, events, performances and screenings for everyone, culminating each year in our month-long Together! Festival for Disability History Month. We help to strengthen existing Disability Arts groups in East London and create new ones, and work to connect local communities with the developing Disability Arts offer in Stratford’s Cultural Quarter and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. In 2020-21 we are delivering this programme virtually.
