HouseFound Symposium is a new conference on disability arts and access aimed at people working in the performance and visual arts sector who can embed change in their organisations.
The goal of HouseFound is to engage arts leaders on how best to work with creatives who struggle to leave their homes and provide an opportunity to learn, exchange and have a conversation about making change.
The event will comprise of a series of panel discussions followed by three short performances. The panelists include LEVEL Centre Artistic Associate Bella Milroy, a disabled visual artist based in Chesterfield; Elle Chante a singer-songwriter and musical self-expressionist who lives with multiple invisible physical and mental health conditions; and Ban Summers a musician and Radio DJ who plays work by disabled musicians on air.
HouseFound will be a hybrid digital and live streamed event. Selected artists will perform to a camera in their homes, with their performance streamed and projected into a physical space at LEVEL for a small in-person audience of 20 delegates in addition to the online delegation. This is to act as a proof of concept for how to run an event that includes performers who struggle to leave the home and can be used by attendees as a model for future events.
