Produced in collaboration with our Artistic Associate Bella Milroy, Further Afield is a series of online events that explore the experiences of disabled artists who live and practice in rural areas across the country.
This month the guest speaker will be Abi Palmer, a writer, artist and filmmaker whose work often uses multisensory interaction and play to explore themes of disability, access intimacy and queer culture.
The events are free to join and take place on Zoom. Hosted by Bella, each event is designed to prompt discussion and look at ways that collaboratively we can affect change within the arts. We’ve invited a different rurally-based guest speaker along to each event who will share their story and take questions alongside Bella. The event will be captioned and there will be a BSL interpreter on screen, we’ll also be recording the event and sharing the videos here on the LEVEL website.
You can submit questions about creative practices based in rural locations to: email@example.com with the subject line: Further Afield. You will also be able to submit questions via the Zoom chat function during the event. Submitting a question does not guarantee that it will be answered during the event, but we will tray and answer as many questions as we can.
