There will be representatives from Arts Council, Deaf Explorers Artists and DASH.

The programme for the day:

11:15am – tea/coffee and networking
12:00 Keynote presentations: Deaf Explorer artists & arts organisations
13:00 Discussion: Barriers to networking & funding / Arts organisations supporting visual artists
14:00 Presentations from deaf artists
15:00 Discussion: Opportunities to work together / Pitch project ideas

We are now planning a project that will involve many deaf artists. If you applied to deaf explorer in 2012 and you were unsuccessful, please have a look at our video. We do hope you get involved in the next phase of the deaf explorer journey, to get deaf artists working in the mainstream arts.
