Disability arts goes global

By Graeae Team, March, 22 2018

Celebrating the recent Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, we’ve launched our next series of ‘In conversation with…’ videos to discuss how disability arts is addressed around the world.

Presenter and Journalist, Mik Scarlet interviews Jenny Sealey (Artistic Director, Graeae), Amit Sharma (Associate Director, Graeae), Jodi-Alissa Bickerton (Creative Learning Director, Graeae) and Asako Hirokawa (President, NPO Theatre Accessibility Network, Japan).

The video highlights Graeae’s recent work in Bangladesh, Pakistan, India and Japan, and why is it so important to continue to extend our work internationally as part of the wider disability arts movement across the world.

For the first time in history, disabled people were in the audience and on stage. The first time ever in Bangladesh.
