Unlimited Connects: Di-Ben-Draw
November 14th and 15th
Come and join us for a series of talks, panel discussions, workshops and performances exploring a breadth of disability-led arts.
Venues and organisations often work with people they already know but what about those they don’t; those who feel excluded and operate outside existing networks?
What about artists and potential audience members who have access requirements outside of those usually provided?
TWO DAY EVENT
This two-day event will run from 11am – 7pm daily and consist of a mixture of panel discussions and presentations including one debating the topic: Can venues be all things to all people?
And at 7pm each day you can join us in watching our programmed production for the day.
Workshops will be on offer, offering practical skills in building networking confidence.
This event has BSL interpreters and captioning, with step-free access, alternative seating/lying arrangements, and a quiet space.
For this event we’ve teamed up again with Unlimited, an arts commissioning programme that enables new work by disabled artists to reach UK and international audiences.
-ish by Aby Watson
Thursday 14 November 7-8pm
-ish is a solo choreography of movement, text and object exploring the murky territory that dyspraxia, an invisible coordination disorder, inhabits between the simple dichotomy of able / disabled.

Gods and Kings by Paul Whittaker
Friday 15 November, 7-7.45pm
A man leaves a consultation room facing a choice. It should be a pretty straightforward choice. Take the pill and live. Don’t take the pill and die. But the decision proves to be more difficult; does he risk losing his life or risk no longer being the person he has been all of his life? Challenging perceptions of what it is to live with mental illness, Gods & Kings is a bracingly honest and often hugely funny real-life story.
