Artist Dan Daw sits down with Chunky Move’s Antony Hamilton and Arts Access’ Caroline Bowditch discuss radical access in the arts.

After having spent a lifetime being an inspiration to others, queer disabled performance-maker Dan Daw is finally seizing the moment to inspire himself.

Ahead of performing at RISING with The Dan Daw Show, Daw joins fellow choreographer and dancer, Chunky Move Artistic Director Antony Hamilton, and Arts Access CEO Caroline Bowditch to discuss radical access in the arts.

d/Deaf and Disabled artists are vital contributors to arts and culture, with unique perspectives on lived experiences that challenge and redefine aesthetics. But even still, artists with disability earn less than half the income of their non-disabled colleagues. Radical Access seeks to close that gap and have real impact on the lives and careers of all independent artists, artworkers and audiences.
