Two new reports commissioned by the British Council to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December 2021 describe the British Council’s global disability arts programme as a ‘revolutionary movement’, while also highlighting the huge barriers preventing disabled artists from fully accessing the international cultural sector.

An independent report by UK disability arts specialist Tim Wheeler, explores the British Council’s global disability arts programme since 2012, celebrating achievements and learnings so far, sharing stories of change in countries such as Bangladesh, South Korea and Indonesia, and making additional recommendations for the future.

An additional report, authored by On the Move for Europe Beyond Access, the world’s largest transnational arts and disability project, reveals how a continued lack of knowledge in the European cultural sector creates barriers for disabled artists and audiences.
