Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Further Afield: Call Out

Open call to connect with disabled Global Majority* artists from across the UK​​​​​​​

  • Further Afield is an ambitious, disabled-led project that platforms disabled artists who are rurally based or whose creative practices are rooted in rural settings.

  • The project will be primarily made up of a series of interviews with disabled artists exploring what living and making art in rural spaces means to them.
  • The project will also carry out research across disabled-artist communities who have rural practices, with an aim to further support and enhance rurally based disabled artists’ exposure and creative networks.
  • The aim of Further Afield is to celebrate the work of disabled artists and question what we expect to find in rural art, centring disabled-artist experiences such as barriers to access, isolation, rural infrastructure, virtual community, imagination, resourcefulness, and the desire for diverse creative opportunities.

As part of the project’s research, Level are looking to find as many relevant people as possible. They aim to promote and share their work via the project website, social media and the project’s extensive network of supporting partners. There may be the opportunity/opportunities for paid collaboration in other aspects of the project, but connecting via this call out is not a guarantee that this will happen. Level are deeply appreciative of your time and labour in sharing your work and practice with us.
