Event description

Description

An evening exploring the art of the Access All Areas Performance Company with performances and discussions with Liselle Terret from University of East London, Nick Llewellyn from Access All Areas, Daniel Oliver, Cian Binchy, Barefaced Collective (Gemma Smith and Zara Jayne Arnold), Not your Circus Dog (Elinor Keber and Emma Selwyn) and Everyday DayLee (Dayo Koleosho and Lee Philips).


LADA is working with Access All Areas Performance Company to address the lack of visibility for learning disabled and autistic artists within Live Art.

Access All Areas run the award-winning Performance Making diploma course at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and have been piloting different ways for graduates from that programme to create their own work, either as collectives or as solo artists. They are currently supporting 12 artists as part of the Access All Areas Performance Company in a three year artist development programme. In 2017, they worked with artist Daniel Oliver on his LADA DIY project to begin to address the need for better inclusivity which initiated some fruitful collaborations. They have also learnt from other recent successes such as Access All Areas artist Emma Selwyn and Hester Chillingworth collaborating as part of a Steakhouse Live commission.

Access All Areas are aware however that they need a wider pool of creative collaborators who have an understanding of the social model of disability to help develop and promote the artists’ work, and are also keen to think through other strategies for better including learning disabled and autistic artists into programming and development opportunities. They are completely open to new ideas towards commissioning, platforms, networking, funding and programming.

To further this work this is one of three events at LADA:

Tuesday 4 September 2pm - 6pm
Thursday 22 November, 3pm - 6pm

Please note: All of our events are free. We ask for reservations to give us a sense of numbers for catering etc, however we no longer limit capacities in advance or have waiting lists. So when you book we do encourage you to arrive early or at least promptly - partly to secure a seat but also not to disrupt events after they’ve started.

"I take my responsibility to turn up when I’ve booked a free place maybe even more seriously than when I’ve paid for a ticket. Because with free tickets someone else is paying for that ticket, right? Maybe it’s the organisers, maybe it's the artist, maybe it’s a funding body, but I know that if I’m not paying then someone else is paying for me. So I want to be mindful of that gift, and make sure that it will really be passed on if I decide not to go.” - LADA Audience Member 2018

Thank you for coming to LADA events and we look forward to seeing you soon.
