ACCESSIBILITY FOR ARTS
Sunday 30th October
How can we make art and performance more accessible for those with diverse needs? This workshop is designed for artists looking to incorporate accessibility strategies and diverse audiences into their projects - before, during and after development. Hosted by Jodee Mundy and focusing on simple approaches to create more inclusive creative works this practical seminar will help artists to bring their practice to wider audiences and consider individuals with diverse needs within the creative process.
Artistic Director Jodee Mundy is committed to producing high quality theatre works, public events, installations and artistic interventions, bringing together diverse cross sections of the community who may not regularly encounter one another.
Her works include: The Carers Project; a sanctuary in the city, Imagined Touch: the deafblind live art experience and her latest work in development, Personal, exploring her experience as being the only person who hears in her all Deaf family.
Her artistic aim is for audiences to witness works that challenge and inspire them to acknowledge: the value of liveperformance, communities, and the ability of the art to redefine and skew the notions of inclusiveness.
Her work ultimately points to a future ‘beyond inclusion’, where diversity is inherently valuable to the art. Rather than a point of difference, it is considered a point of commonality.
Jodee Mundy Collaborations is an independent creative producing company formed in 2012, in response to the multiple collaborations and partnerships established and continuing to develop with artists, diverse communities, organisations and funders. www.jodeemundy.com
