How can disabled artists be critiqued equally? Is the art of disabled artists still placed in a ‘ghetto’ and ignored? Do critics focus on disability rather than art? Is there enough academic rigour around the work of disabled artists?
Firstsite has partnered with Unlimited to celebrate disabled artists, connecting up arts sector organisations and individuals based in Arts Council England’s South East Area. Join us for a day of provocations, discussions and encounters, in a relaxed environment, including a 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.
