As part of our outreach and learning programme, the Trust has secured a grant from the HS2 Community Fund to engage communities and local schools to share the heritage and to uncover and record the stories behind the evolution of the Paralympic Games.
As part of this, we would like to work with disabled artists, from a variety of practice backgrounds ranging from graphic designers to performance artists, to create and deliver workshops inspired by our Paralympic heritage collection. 22 separate workshops will take place between June 2021 and November 2022.
Participating artists will be paid to:
• share their art and story as an artist with local community groups and schools.
• select an item, theme or story from the NPHT displays in the Heritage Centre or the National Spinal Injuries Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital or our website, sharing the reasons for their choice.
• use the item, theme or story to inspire and deliver a workshop in collaboration with the partner schools and groups.
Eligibility: All disabled artists from any area of practice suitable for workshop delivery.
What you get out of it: £300 per day plus expenses and access costs. Each workshop is two days in duration.
