Disability Arts International is inviting Deaf and disabled artists, and both disabled-led & inclusive companies, to create a self-managed online profile to share their work with promoters, venues, curators and programmers across the world.
Run by the British Council, we understand that disabled artists face a range of barriers in developing international artistic relationships and that additional promotional tools can only enhance international opportunities.
Artists from anywhere in the world can have a profile. For artists in the UK, this resource enhances and does not replace any promotion of your work by the British Council’s specialist arts teams.
There are only four eligibility criteria:
- You self-identify as a disabled artist, you are a disabled-led company, or your company is inclusive of disabled people.
- You create professional work. We usually define this as work which the general public pay money to experience, and where the artists are paid.
- You have work which is ready to tour/exhibit internationally. (There is no point in trying to attract international promoters/curators if your work isn’t ready yet!)
- You have the infrastructure to fulfill international touring, presenting or exhibition commitments.
