Disability Advisory Board

Call Out for Advisory Board Members

 We are seeking individuals who have a passion for the arts, with lived experience of disability, to join an Advisory Board. This will be facilitated by Art Shape and attended by Arts Inc partners

The Board is an opportunity to engage with a cross-section of the County’s arts organisations, sharing problems, needs and experiences in a confidential and safe environment.

We aim to collaboratively seek solutions to issues faced by disabled participants, audiences and/or artists aiming to access the arts, as well as challenges faced by organisations striving to improve inclusion and access. Through this Advisory Board, we’ll also work together to identify and capitalise on opportunities and diverse emerging talent.

Meetings will be held quarterly at accessible venues within Gloucestershire.  A budget for reasonable expenses will be available. This budget is capped to the partner contribution to it for the year.


To express interest:

  • Contact Lucy Garrett for an informal chat, to find out more, and/or if you would like to make an application: lucy@artshape.co.uk / 01452 863855




About the Arts Inc partnership:
We provide a non-judgemental ‘space’ (virtual and/or physical) for peer and leadership support where, as disabled and non-disabled professionals, we question, share and reflect on our experiences and learning.


The partners are Gloucestershire-based organisations working across various artforms with a commitment to developing disability access and inclusion.  We range from small start-up arts companies such as Dance Unstuck to larger, well-established organisations such as Cheltenham Festivals.
