Key is that whatever we might think, the wider arts world disable us. Physical & communication access, negative attitudes, being considered worthy of lower status are all experiences that disable artists so thus we're Disabled artists. Break down the barriers that disable us!

Work i about me and of me but not exclusively for me anymore. I emerge from my shell full of ego to chance my arm with an audience that needs to know what i know. I am given no choice but to voice my experience now

fellow disabled artists - as a tiny gesture to each other, to solidarity, to new members and to a revitalised movement, we could gain a lot from reciprocal retweeting. Not an answer to everything but connectedness and visibility are good things, strengthening.

It's so important for non-disabled orgs to be allies; having someone disabled on your staff, hiring consultants, doing research into access needs and reducing barriers to isolation. Don't know the answer? Ask! Get like-minded orgs together to share information.

It is exactly this. If you are going to be a freelance artist, you are basically a sole-trader - a small independent business of one.

This is such a valid point - the additional time and cost barriers in our way.

Was just talking about this - the body of work that is expected to prove yourself as an emerging artist and how to collect, create and curate this when there is little experience in known roles or with known organisations to back it up. How do we build it?

How do we make sure that this world of disability arts and participatory practice is more visible? So many of us are not finding it until much too late. And how many amazing artists out there are we missing? What's our way forward? How do we become more visible?

Disability is not a bad word - or is it... Is it a strength or hindrance when applying for work/starting out?

Really good answer - so it's not just about our identities, but how they inform the art we're making. And therefore has an element of activism too?

They are out there. I found some of them for the DAO editorship. What scares me is that this generation is growing up in such an age of austerity and terror and poverty, that can/will making art be possible and can it be a priority?

That's how I feel too. That at least I know from the outset what they're like. BUT this is illegal discrimination. There should be a way to both report this and get the information out there.
