Access, Equality & Opportunities artist discussions with the Arts Council
Posted: 29 June, 2020
Arts Council are looking for expressions of interest from artists with disabilities to take part in their Access, Equality & Opportunities artist discussions.
“In our Equality, Human Rights & Diversity policy Action Plan we commit to undertaking a substantive consultative process with artists from diverse backgrounds to gain a more informed perspective on the issues they face in advancing their careers as artists. We want to hear from you about the obstacles you have encountered in having a career as an artist in Ireland today.
We had originally planned to hold a series of meetings at different locations around the country but with the ongoing Covid 19 situation that is no longer possible. We are however putting plans in place to hold a series of web-based consultations and we would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in taking part. We are particularly interested in hearing from artists and practitioners we have not engaged with before.
Alongside the consultation meetings, we will also run an online survey, to ensure anyone not in a position to participate, can provide their thoughts and ideas.”
“We look forward to hearing from you!”
