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.
