It is now widely acknowledged that the voices of disabled people have been missing from our cultural landscape. Disability and the Politics of Visibility is a series of commissioned talks by five vital and exciting disabled artists at the forefront of thinking and writing. Vici Wreford-Sinnott is a disabled theatre and screen writer and director based in North East England, who has dedicated her career to changing the narratives around disabled people. She has invited and curated a broad range of ten-minute pieces from Dolly Sen, Cheryl Martin, Jamie Hale, Steph Robson and Sophie Woolley with each of them exploring the theme of the politics of visibility as disabled people and artists from their own perspectives. The writings are punchy, powerful, definitely surprising and all beautifully disrupt accepted ‘wisdom’. It’s time to tell a new story.
A different piece will be released online between Monday 11 and Friday 15 October at 5pm each day.
