The Disability Consultancy for Creative Change (DC4CC) is proud to announce the cohort of six selected artists/producers that will be paired with six organisations in the East of England for Phase 2 of the research project.
- Suzie Birchwood
- Casper Love
- Edi McGurk
- Sonny Nwachukwu
- Bibi June Schwithal
- Catherine Turner
The DC4CC is Liz Counsell, Kate Marsh & Linda Rocco. They came together in 2021 to
undertake research into the experiences of disabled artists and audiences in accessing arts
and cultural venues. The culminating discussions, which can be found here, have informed
the development of Phase 2.
Phase 2 sees a two-month organisational placement of the selected artists/producers to
develop a programme of professional development for disabled artists and producers. This
process is developed in dialogue with the partner organisations to better understand the
sector’s big picture. The professional development plans devised during the placement will
be part of a wider nationally significant project in Phase 3, to bring the research into action
and make tangible changes to the performing arts landscape in the East region for D/deaf
and disabled artists and producers.
The DC4CC is commissioned by Arts Council England and supported by ourselves,
Cambridge Junction and Colchester Arts Centre.
