Be part of a multi-sensory and disability-led artistic residency led by Nwando Ebizie.
Over 4 days you’ll explore access as a creative practice across all artistic mediums.
Under the guidance of formidable interdisciplinary artist Nwando Ebizie you’ll:
- Develop a multi-sensory installation at the People’s History Museum to celebrate their “Nothing About Us, Without Us” exhibition on the history of disability rights activism
- Collaborate with other artists across different practices
This project encourages connection, collaboration and self-exploration between D/deaf, Disabled and Neurodivergent artists from across the UK, with a focus on those from the North of England.
Who it’s for
This project is open to:
Women and people of marginalised genders, including, but not limited to:
- All Women, including Trans Women
- Non-Binary and Agender People
- Gender Fluid and Genderqueer People
- Trans Men and Trans Masculine People
- Intersex People
Who also identify as D/deaf, Disabled or Neurodivergent, including, but not limited to:
- Visible and Invisible Disabilities
- Learning Disabilities
- Long-term mental health disabilities and conditions
- Long-term physical health disabilities and conditions
We’re after artists (aged 18+) looking to develop their creative practice collaboratively, who work in one or more sensory creative disciplines, such as:
- Music / Sound
- Visual / Lighting
- Scent / Olfactory
- Touch / Textile
Our programme addresses the regional divide within the music industry. For this reason, the project is open nationwide, but we’ll prioritise people from the North of England (by the ‘North’ we mean the North East, North West and Yorkshire regions).
The application deadline is 11pm on Wednesday 2nd of November.
