DaDaFest, in partnership with the Liverpool Everyman, is hosting a half day seminar discussing the barriers to accessing disability arts and the lack of representation and engagement by Black, Asian or other ethnic artists. Register your interest now!
Is there an issue in the UK as to the lack of representation or engagement by Black, Asian and other ethnic artists and communities within the disability arts sector? If there are issues, why is this case? What barriers limit or prevent more active participation? Is this just a cultural issue for the UK? Is there something we should do as artists and cultural leaders to bring about change and more inclusive and diverse practice?
DaDaFest in partnership with the Liverpool Everyman is hosting a half day seminar to allow a group of invited leaders, experts and artists to meet and discuss not only these issues, but also develop an action plan that identifies the barriers to participation and investigates what we can do to change this current position.
We will create a forum where people will listen, share ideas and come up with workable solutions. Ensuring diverse voices lead (and white people listen!)
