Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

DASH bids farewell to Trustee

Nicola is an artist-filmmaker, who first became involved with DASH in 2012. She remembers: "I was excited by DASH's 'Unlimited' commissions for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad."

After this it became clear that she wanted to contribute to supporting disabled artists working in the mainstream, because she believes their point of view is creatively innovative. As a disabled artist herself, she benefited in 2001 from an Arts Council funded professional development opportunity, which significantly advanced her artistic practice.

Nicola joined the board of DASH in 2013, and has spent the last three years being involved with the exchange of ideas and creativity.

Nicola believes that DASH makes a difference by providing disabled artists with high profile opportunities and enabling disabled people to access creative practice which will lead to more disabled artists...

Nicola says: 'It is with immense regret that I feel I have to leave my position of trustee at DASH as at this point, as presently I cannot contribute as much as I would like to. I have sincerely loved working with the board and staff to support their work with disabled artists and am immensely proud of our achievements together.'

The board and staff thank Nicola for all her support and encouragement over the last three years and wish her all the best with her future projects.
