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 across the country to programme disabled artists, and deepen the discussion and debate around their work.
This series of six 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 first film follows the progress of dancer Laura Dajao, who received an Unlimited Impact Research and Development grant to explore her first choreographic work, ‘Running Low on Fuel’.
Mentored by renowned choreographer Marso Riviere and working with East London Dance as producer, Laura took her concept to the rehearsal room, bringing it to life with a diverse mix of dancers and musicians.
The experience saw her develop not only her artistic practice, but also her leadership skills, and has sparked new ideas and concepts for future work.
