Title of position advertised
Apply for NDACA’s R&D Grants, Shape Arts

Cost
-

Deadline
30/06/2017

Applications are now open for the NDACA Research & Development Grant, aimed at supporting four emerging disabled artists. Successful applicants will be awarded a grant of £1,000 to make new work as part of their ongoing practice, and will be mentored by one of four key artists who were involved in the ‘Golden Age’ of the Disability Arts Movement.

From April 2018, the National Disability Arts Collection & Archive (NDACA) will be available to the public as an online collection of artwork and ephemera created during the Disability Arts Movement. This is the heritage story of a group of disabled people and their allies, who broke barriers, made great art and contributed to the Disability Discrimination Act being passed by Parliament in 1995. NDACA has been made possible by the generous funding of Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

The successful artists will be profiled and have their work promoted through NDACA’s online platforms, facilitated through the project’s lead delivery partner Shape Arts. Each artist will be assigned to one mentor for a series of five mentoring sessions, to occur between September - December 2017.

These mentors are established disabled artists.

NDACA will provide advice and support on how to create fully accessible artwork, including subtitling audio work and providing audio description for visual work.

To apply or for more information, please visit: https://www.shapearts.org.uk/news/ndaca-rnd-applications. Deadline for applications: 30 June 2017.

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for disabled artists to develop their careers, and to be a part of the disability arts heritage that went before them.
