Artist Research Bursary
We were lucky to receive an Artist Research Bursary, supported by The Work Room Glasgow. We carried out research from October 2020 - February 2021. For this, we researched the knowledge gaps in dance education for people with invisible disabilities based on our own experience. We were mentored by Artist Luke Pell and were grateful to meet so many amazing disabled and non-disabled artists. We are currently working towards creating a training day where we can share our research to help educate 'mainstream' dance artists/educators on how they can become more Autistic and Deaf Friendly.
We were lucky to share the process of our research and thoughts at The Work Room's Friday Social Event on 5 February 2021. If you missed out you can view the recording below.
