SAVE THE DATE
Disability Arts Cymru has teamed up with the Wales Millennium Centre and Unlimited to hold a panel discussion about disability and the arts in Wales.
This will take place on 8 October, 2 – 4.30pm in the Preseli Room at Wales Millennium Centre.
Since 2012 a number of Welsh disabled artists have applied for Unlimited Commissions but sadly very few have been successful. The next round for Unlimited funding opens on September 13th with the expression of interest applications. Before the closing date at the end of October we want to attract more disabled artists to apply.
These are the questions that will be discussed on the day:
- Do our disabled artists know about Unlimited?
- Are venues connecting with disabled artists and supporting their work?
- Are our ideas / project creating skills good enough?
The panel will be chaired by Unlimited Producer, Jo Verrant and speakers will include playwright Kaite O’Reilly and WMC Assistant Producer Jenny Sturt.
This will be an excellent opportunity for artists to find out more about Unlimited, to network with other artists and representatives from organisations and to discuss ideas for an Unlimited commission. We do hope you will be able to join us.
Further details of how to book a place will be sent out in due course.
From 11am, and after the discussion, there will be surgery sessions with Unlimited staff to discuss ideas and the application process on a 1-2-1 basis. Surgery places can be booked by emailing Jenny.Sturt@wmc.org
