Arts D'Visions

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!)

  1. Challenging racism is not just about white people listening. It is about owning up to the power and privilege that places White Middle class citizens in leading roles throughout our society. It is about not colluding with the systems we have created that ensure Black and minority ethnic people do not get to take charge. We need shared conversations and we need affirmative action. Every arts organisation in this country should be looking at their succession training, their managment practices, their recruitment procedures, their programming and their delivery. Now!
