Thursday 18 October
Live Theatre Studio, Newcastle


A Slate and Unlimited Workshop for artists of colour who identify as disabled. This event will be run using Open Space Technology – so you create the agenda!

Join Paul James, Senior Creative Associate at Live Theatre and Slate Enabler, Degna Stone for an event that explores the barriers and challenges faced by disabled artists of colour when creating work, and what changes need to happen to overcome them.

We will also be joined by Sonny Nwachukwu, Unlimited’s Trainee Producer, who will let you know how to submit an Expression of Interest for Unlimited’s latest round of commissions. Read Sonny’s blog from the Slate/Unlimited event in Sheffield.

Slate is a cross-art form development programme run by Eclipse to support Black* artists across the north of England by increasing access to local, national and international networks.

Developed and delivered by the Black arts sector in the North, Slate is funded by an Arts Council England Sustained Theatre Award.

*To Eclipse, Black includes anyone who is marginalized for their race or ethnicity.


Unlimited supports ambitious, creative projects by outstanding disabled artists and companies. The projects include theatre, dance, music, literature, performance, painting, sculpture, public artworks, photography, digital artworks, installations, films and more.

Unlimited wants to change perceptions of disabled people by commissioning disabled artists in the UK and internationally to make new, ground-breaking and high-quality work.
