Disabled people around the globe faced unique and unprecedented additional challenges in 2020 – due to lack of access, stereotypical assumptions and ableism and, for some, increased clinical susceptibility to COVID-19. As vaccines beckon and ‘new normals’ emerge, both Unlimited and the British Council want to ensure disabled artists are able to respond confidently with alternative options and models to do what they always do: help us imagine the world differently.
Funded by British Council and administered by Unlimited, these micro awards are to support artists in this uncertain time to build connections/collaborations, rather than to create work. The funding can cover a range of purposes – for example, reflecting on past work, using the time to explore different creative processes together, or even planning to create small iterations of new work, if relevant.
Each application must be led by a UK disabled artist or company/collective working with a UK disabled artist and applications can be for up to £2500. This includes up to £1000 for each artist or collective, and up to £500 for administration, translation, and equipment. Access funding is available separately – both to support access to applications and/or access to support the project.
