You’ve probably guessed by now that Unlimited seeks to make the world a more vibrant, equal and accessible place for all.

It’s a tall order, but by 2020 Unlimited wants to see a monumental (and global) shift in the cultural sector’s attitudes to work by disabled artists and access for disabled audiences. To do that, we need to reach arts professionals nationally and internationally with our key messages and information about the works we’ll be commissioning from disabled artists. We are doing that in lots of ways – but we also need professional help!

We’re looking to make contact with experienced and enthusiastic arts PR professionals who are keen to work with us and spread the word about Unlimited. This is the first of several PR briefs that we’ll be issuing over the next few years, so if you’re keen to work with us long-term, this could be the start of an exciting journey. It’s an open call, and as a disability-led arts commissioning programme, we are keen to ensure Expressions of Interest from disabled people and disability-led companies are part of the mix, so please do help us share the opportunity far and wide.

If you want to apply, please download the brief in Word or PDF format, below, and send an initial response describing how you would approach the task (no more than 500 words), along with your CV and any relevant portfolio materials and reports to Jennifer Tomkins, Head of Marketing & Development, Artsadmin by Thursday 2 February 2017 – jennifer@artsadmin.co.uk. Please also email Jennifer if you require the brief in an alternative format.
