New programme for disabled artists

Shape and Arts have been awarded £1.5 million by Arts Council England to deliver a new three year commissioning programme to support disabled artists in developing ambitious and high quality work.

The programme, 'Unlimited', which will be delivered throughout England and Scotland, will not only help disabled artists develop their practice and encourage the development of new relationships and collaborations with producers, venues and promoters, but will also increase distribution of disabled artists' work (through digital means and touring up to an international level), affording greater opportunities for audiences to see the work. Funding is available both to individual disabled artists and organisations applying on behalf of disabled artists.

Applications must be received by 12pm on the 17 February 2014 to be taken into consideration.
