Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Quality Dis/Abled Recording

The recording of the Quality Dis/abled seminar, funded by the British Art Network and Paul Mellon Centre and hosted by Amanda Lynch, is now available to watch.

This seminar explores how quality within art practice is judged between people facing barriers, who identify as disabled, and D/deaf disabled persons and non-disabled counterparts.

The quality of artwork has consistently been judged by ableist standards within the arts towards disabled people. This seminar will explore what contributes to these standards and what they are. Exploring this will open up discussion as to what makes quality arts practice, what are the barriers for disabled people and how this can turn into positive change.
