Creative Future has just completed Arts Council funded research into the barriers marginalised and disabled artists face when accessing mainstream arts opportunities.
In August 2014, Creative Future conducted an in-house pilot study to investigate the barriers preventing disabled and/or marginalised adults from accessing and engaging with arts opportunities. A total of 49 individuals took part in an online survey, as a result of which Creative Future sought further funding for its ‘Fair Access to the Arts’ project.
With support from Arts Council England and Brighton & Hove City Council, the project’s aim is to increase the access to the arts for disabled and/or marginalised adults. The first stage in the delivery of this project is to identify the barriers experienced by individual artists and writers when accessing mainstream arts opportunities.
A mixed methods study was conducted between July and October 2015, engaging with 120 organisations and 500 individuals.
