Re:Visits Disabled Artist Led Residency


A Disabled Artist Led Residency with Helix Arts. Part of our Re:Visits programme. Inspired by our past with the aim of informing our future.

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 which celebrates and commemorates 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.
