BBC Arts Culture in Quarantine: Commissioning Strand to Support Disabled Artists

BBC Arts Culture in Quarantine: Commissioning Strand to Support Disabled Artists

Tuesday, 12 January 2021, 12.00pm

To mark the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, BBC Arts, Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales and Creative Scotland have launched a new Culture in Quarantine commissioning round to celebrate the work of disabled, D/deaf and neurodiverse artists.

Ten established disabled artists will be commissioned from across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to create new video or audio works to be published on BBC platforms in 2021.

They want to hear from the full diversity of exceptional and established disabled artists, working in any discipline across the four nations. Proposals should be for video or audio content. There is no specific editorial brief: projects can – but do not have to – creatively respond to the disabled experience of living through the pandemic.

The commissions will be published in 2021 on BBC platforms, with the aim of reaching audiences across the UK and worldwide.

The new Culture in Quarantine programme is being managed by The Space in partnership with Unlimited.

Access support is available for applications including alternative formats and funding for access support, within the limits of our overall programme budget.

The deadline for applications is noon, Tuesday 12 January 2021.
