DaDaFest and Disability Arts Online are hosting a panel discussion event on 30th November 2pm-3.30pm, to provoke the arts and cultural sector to improve digital inclusion and remove barriers.

Anyone will be able to watch a live stream of the videos and discussion, but we want to also involve you in the conversations. People registering in advance will be able to join the live discussion session, providing you with an opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts on this critical subject. Registration will close 30 minutes before the scheduled event start.

Artists Pierce Starre, Julian Gray, Nicola Smith, Amelia Cavallo and learning disability arts organisation Stay Up Late will present short video provocations showcasing digital artwork and exploring digital exclusion as well testimonials on accessible processes.

These presentations on developing a digital practice during lockdown and beyond, will be followed by a live panel discussion chaired by DAO Editor Colin Hambrook with Clare Reddington CEO of Watershed, Vici Wreford-Sinnott Director of Little Cog and DAO Associate Artist Ashokkumar Mistry who will discuss a call to action, instigating organisational change and eliminating discriminatory practices within the arts.
