Are you an art worker or an artist who worries about accessibility? Do you wonder how to make your workplace or practice more inclusive of disabled people? Do you have questions you’d like to share in a friendly environment with other art workers where we can learn from each other’s experiences?
This discussion-based workshop forms an introduction to how art workers can approach and embed disability inclusivity at all levels through a disability-led perspective of best practice. It comprises an overview of the Social Model of Disability, the guiding framework for true accessibility, with a focus on providing the necessary knowledge and tools for practical application across all structures and scenarios of work in visual arts in order to progress towards the full inclusion of disabled people in the arts as artists, audiences and workers.
BRING YOUR QUESTIONS, WE’LL BRING COFFEE AND BISCUITS. We encourage participants to come with their own case-specific practical dilemmas.
This workshop will be led by Lulu Nunn. Lulu is a curator, writer, activist and sometimes performer from and based in London. She is founder and curator of HOAX, a print, online and events platform dedicated to publishing and presenting creative work incorporating text. She is an advocate for disability rights in the arts, working as a consultant in best practice and accessibility, and is currently employed by visual arts organisation Bow Arts as Marketing and Communications Manager.
