Accessibility Steering Group

Wysing Arts Centre is a progressive arts organisation that develops new ways to support artists and enable art and ideas to reach a wide range of people in unexpected ways. Through its innovative work, Wysing influences the development of the visual arts sector in the UK, Europe and, increasingly, the wider world.

Wysing is committed to improving the accessibility of our programmes. We would like to invite d/Deaf, disabled* and neurodivergent** artists and audiences to participate in a steering group to work with us on our future plans.

The Accessibility Steering Group will be appointed to talk to the team at Wysing to co-design new ways of working. We want to hear directly from people who face barriers and have lived experience so that we can make sure our organisation is as inclusive as possible. Participation in the Steering Group is a paid opportunity.

Rates of Pay

Each person will be paid £250 for attending a two hour meeting and providing feedback. If you can participate in all six meetings, you will earn a fee of £1500. 

Time Commitment

Six meetings of 2 hours, over the course of a year. 12 hours total. Some time expected for email, phone or Zoom correspondence to plan meeting dates. 

How To Apply

We would be happy to receive an expression of interest in the form of a video or a letter (1-2 pages) outlining your interest in joining the group and how you meet the key criteria in the Person Specification in the information pack.

Expressions of interest should be emailed directly to Ceri Littlechild.

If you would like to discuss the role with our Head of Operations, Ceri Littlechild then please call 01954 717104 or email ceri.littlechild@wysingartscentre.org.

*We recognise that the term disabled can itself be problematic, but for now is widely accepted.

**It is estimated that around 1 in 7 people (more than 15% of people in the UK) are neurodivergent, meaning that the brain functions, learns and processes information differently. Neurodivergence includes ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. https://archive.acas.org.uk/neurodiversity
