Unlimited Impact Films: BAC’s Collaborative Touring Network Tweet
posted on: 02 March 2016, posted by: Selma, Unlimited Team
Unlimited Impact supports emerging disabled artists to create new work and inspires the next generation of disabled people passionate about making change. The programme also extends the main Unlimited programme’s reach by supporting venues and cultural organisations across the country to programme disabled artists, and deepen the discussion and debate around their work.
This series of short films takes a look at the programme’s progress and introduces some of the artists and arts organisations with whom we have worked.
The fourth film in our series looks at our flourishing relationship with Battersea Arts Centre’s Collaborative Touring Network, a cohort of six arts festivals, across the UK, and how Impact supported a range of access improvements tailored for regional audiences as well as further training for local producers.
‘I think what Unlimited Impact do is demystify that idea that access is a very niche, expensive, difficult thing to achieve. But actually it’s given people the confidence to be like “I can make really small changes and actually have a really accessible, open environment in my festival”’
