Further Afield is a programme of scheduled live events, storytelling, tool-sharing for
disabled artists and creatives living rurally across Derbyshire and those facing similar
challenges across the UK.
Further Afield is produced in collaboration with our Artistic Associate Bella Milroy. This series of three online events explores the experiences of disabled artists who live and practice in rural areas across the country.
The events are free to join and take place on Zoom. Hosted by Bella, each event is designed to prompt discussion and look at ways that collaboratively we can affect change within the arts. We’ve invited a different rurally-based guest speaker along to each event who will share their story and take questions alongside Bella. The event will be captioned and there will be a BSL interpreter on screen, we’ll also be recording the event and sharing the videos here on the LEVEL website.
