Greater Expectations

Hosted by Aisha Ali, Artist Associate Theatre Bristol and Artistic Director, Kiota Bristol.


Following on from our Visible To Be Viable event, Greater Expectations is a space to talk about what we as marginalised creative freelancers should expect in terms of our inclusion. 

True inclusion in the Arts is still a difficult task as we face those who box-tick, those who don’t have a clear understanding of the politics behind it and those who simply have not had to think about it. We grow tired of the word “diversity” and the tokenistic attempts the industry makes to tackle the homogeneity of the creative workforce. As with the social model of disability, the onus should be on the industry and society as a whole to tackle these inequalities and make extra efforts to include, rather than the Creatives themselves. 

We will focus on invisible disabilities, visual impairments and neurodiversity, with a variety of creatives presenting their experience in these areas and leading discussions on what is next for us and for the industry.
