MAYK is producing two Unlimited-commissioned projects in 2018. You can catch the world premiere of one of them, The Nature of Why, by British Paraorchestra, over the first weekend of Mayfest, and we’re also cooking up a new show by Jo Bannon, We Are Fucked, which will open later in 2018.
What’s Unlimited? It’s an arts commissioning programme that enables new work by disabled artists to reach UK and international audiences. “We put the artists at the centre of Unlimited – not just funding awards, but development activities and working within the whole arts ecology to make change happen so that disabled artists can be equally respected and represented within all events and activities.” Jo Verrent, Senior Producer, Unlimited
For Mayfest, MAYK and Watershed are collaborating with Unlimited on an event for artists and organisations associated with Unlimited since 2013 – Unlimited Alumni and Unlimited Allies. Taking place at Watershed on Friday 11 May, this event will include professional development opportunities for disabled artists, networking and a celebratory party showcasing more of Unlimited-commissioned artists.
