Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Anti-ableist Practices in Art and Culture

Join Little Cog online to explore anti-ableist practices in the arts.

There are three different sessions you can join online looking at anti-ableist practices, disabled narratives in drama and performance, and cultural equity beyond access. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Cost - the sessions are Pay What You Decide - we'll email you details after you have booked on Eventbrite.

Access - please complete your access requirements when booking.

Over the last five years we have seen a significant increase in the numbers of arts professionals, companies, galleries and theatres, acknowledging the missing voices and art work of disabled artists, with allies coming forward.
We also know that data has shown the dearth of employment in the arts of disabled people, and fair minded and equitable arts organisations naturally want to address this, knowing their organisations and their work will be richer for including this missing community.

Ableism has been a default setting for far too long, but it is also a choice. Organisations need to acknowledge the pluralism of our communities and make active choices to remove ableism from their practice and from their organisations.

Book onto the sessions to begin, or extend, your active journey into anti-ableism.

The session will be led by Vici Wreford-Sinnott who has championed disability equity for over 30 years. She is a leading figure in the UK Disability Arts Movement, and an acclaimed writer / director for stage and screen. She is currently completing PhD practice based research into performance, representation and reflection of disability in British Theatre.
