11–22 October 2021

Designed to enhance learning and engagement, to explore and dismantle barriers, and to challenge assumptions, each workshop was interactive and hands-on.

Using a suite of resources, exercises, and discussions facilitated by notable thinkers in the field of arts and disability, arts practitioners and professionals were supported as they work to devise and create accessible programmes and initiatives.
