Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

DAO seeks disabled creatives

Disability Arts Online (DAO) has been supporting two guest editorships per year since August 2017 – opportunities for disabled creatives to get practical experience of editing and commissioning content whilst taking ‘editorial control’ of the DAO website.

The aim is to develop disabled thought-leadership in the sector and bring fresh perspectives, new audiences and different approaches to DAO. The programme aims to challenge us, challenge our audiences and become a platform for experimentation, diversity and intersectionality.

They are looking for two disabled creatives to deliver our next two takeovers, slated to happen in November 2022 and February 2023. They’d like you to bring a fresh perspective to Disability Arts Online, bringing the potential to engage new audiences with the content that you create and commission.

They are looking to hear what the specific angle of your takeover would be. DAO are particularly interested in proposals which engage with one or more of their key priorities.

Closing Date: 8 August 2022
