NEW Disabled Artist-Led Residency at Helix Arts

Posted on: 13th February 2024

This is an open call for an artist who identifies as Disabled to undertake an artist in residence at Helix Arts.

The image you provided features the text “RE:VISITS HELIXARTS@40” in white on a purple background. The font is bold and modern, and the layout is simple and clean.

During our 40th anniversary we’ve had conversations with artists with lived experience of Disability across the North East. Disabled artist Lady Kitt supported and informed this work.

This has led to a new commission as part of our Re:Visits programme. It has been created to celebrate and commemorate our 40th anniversary.

We are seeking an artist with lived experience of Disability to work with us.

Some of our work has been with Disabled artists and most of our work has been with participants facing multiple and complex health inequalities.

Book an information session if you want to know more or simply apply via the Expression of Interest.
