2020 has been an unprecedented year for us all and has presented arts organisations such as No Label Arts, who work with Disabled and disadvantaged people, the challenge of being unable to offer in-person quality arts experiences. Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve been up to
One Work Placement
For the first time in our company’s history, we have had the pleasure of ‘virtually’ hosting a work placement theatre student – Ruth Stuart – Ruth is in her final year of a BA (Hons) degree course in contemporary theatre based at the University of Central Lancashire. Ruth has participated in several of our online professional development sessions with England and Cambodia based arts companies ‘We Are Epic’ and ‘Epic Arts’. We would like to thank Arts Council England for providing access funding for Ruth’s brilliant British Sign Language interpreter Kay McCrea.
Over this summer and autumn, the inclusive arts organisations ‘We Are Epic’ and sister organisation ‘Epic Arts’ have delivered a series of online organisational development sessions with us – we have learned about board development, branding, inclusive theatre making and developing Disabled artists and workers which will put us in good stead going forward.
We’re getting ready to offer you some online arts activities to enjoy – but what would you like to see?
