Following on from our self-isolation playlist of top entertainment picks from disabled artists, we’ve put together some suggestions of talks, discussions and more to help you explore issues around disability arts from home.

 

DaDaFest: Rushton Lecture
Did you know we host an annual discussion event named after historic Liverpool social campaigner, Edward Rushton? Our latest keynote was delivered by Graeae associate director, Nickie Miles-Wildin, and you can now watch in it full on our YouTube channel.

 

WoWFest: Lockdown
Currently ongoing, Liverpool’s literary festival, Writing on the Wall, features diverse voices including those of disabled performers such as Amina Atiq, Rosie Jones and Francesca Martinez.

Podcast: ‘Disability and…’
Did you know Disability Arts Online and Graeae have a podcast? It’s a great way of hearing from a range of disabled artists, and has featured plenty of our friends and showcased artists. Listen to the latest episode on working-class LGBTQIA+ perspectives' here, transcripts also available. Don't forget either that Disability Arts Online are hosting a series of Artist Presentations starting 27 May!

 

The White Pube artist residencies
We’ve seen lots of exciting work from disabled artists showcased by alternative art critism website, The White Pube. One staff pick is this podcast from artist, Bella Milroy, exploring the concept of Mobility Shops and ‘alternatives to the dreaded, grey-beige-purgatory of how they exist today’:

 

DANC workshops
Make sure to follow Triple C's Disability Arts Networking Community for a rolling series of workshops for D/deaf and disabled artists from top industry figures and more.

 

With For About 2020 conference

From 27 May, St Helens arts organisation, Heart of Glass, are holding an online ‘slow conference for a fast evolving crisis’ continuing over the next 5 weeks. It will create a ‘vital, slow and complex space between art, activism, care and social practice in response to COVID-19’ and we’re particularly excited for contributions from our previously supported artist, Martin O’Brien

 

Recipe for Scouse
Finally, learn how to make some actual food as Young DaDaFest members take us through elements that make up Liverpool’s culture, as well as the recipe for our traditional dish, scouse!
