A Disabled Artists Manifesto

DEADLINE: 29 June 2020

Sasha Saben Callaghan and Harry Josephine Giles invite submissions as part of their project Not Going Back To Normal.

They want your radical art and ideas for remaking the art world by and for disabled people. They are making a website and a book, and are paying for contributions.

Criteria

This project is for all artists, at any level of experience, who identify as Disabled, D/deaf, chronically ill, neurodiverse, crip, mad, sick, spoonie or otherwise.

Your submission could be a painting, a poem, a page from a journal, a collage, a doodle, a three-minute rant – whatever you want to say, however you want to say it. They can accept up to four A5 sides of print, and up to 10 minutes of audio or video. If you'd like to submit in another medium, get in touch.

Benefits

Submissions will be displayed in an online gallery as a crowdsourced disabled artists manifesto. A fee of GBP £25 will be paid for work displayed online, and a further GBP £50 for work included in the print publication of the manifesto, which will be produced and circulated to galleries, funders and government cultural bodies. Fees can be paid as a store voucher or by another method if needed.
