Dates and times

Saturday 20 October 2018
2:00PM - 6:00PM

As part of Tramway’s Unlimited Festival, we’re inviting those in the industry to join us for an inclusive conversation with disabled artists looking at how and why they make their work and its place in the wider world. 

Asking “how does disability influence the art being made and impact the wider world?” we will:

- talk to disabled artists and makers in different forms and career stages
- discuss how we make art RELEVANT to the wider world
- explore the importance of REPRESENTATION in the arts
- share and celebrate our RESILIENCE in our practice as artists
- invite you to share your perspective

Designed for disabled artists, their collaborators and the arts sector, this event will have room for both the practical and the conceptual, and will include provocations, an evolved-format panel discussion and a networking facilitated friend-making session.
Hosted by Shift.
