Are you an artist, company, venue or promoter and would like to progress the involvement of Disabled Artists and Disability Arts in all areas of performance art?

Are a Disabled Artists – Would you like to have greater opportunities to access to more performance work?

Do you want to reach more Disabled Artists?

Could collaborative working support bigger ideas?

How do we develop larger audiences and share audience intelligence?

Can you offer training and development opportunities to Disabled Artists?

Would you like to be able to discuss and share how Disabled People can be involved in what you do?

Arts organisations and venues have lots of roles and posts that could be fulfilled by Disabled People ­ Do your recruitment processes constructively promote Disabled People as potential candidates, paid or voluntary?

If any of these questions are of interest to you, and any others you may have yourself, then please come along to one of my open sessions to share your thoughts and ask your own questions, and help research into the feasibility of setting up a Disability Arts Performance Network
