Arts is a cornerstone of the British Council’s mission to develop stronger creative sectors around the world that are better connected with one another.
At the British Council, we are passionate about using our arts programmes to support diversity, be it language, ethnicity and religion, gender and sexuality, nature and ecosystems; but arguably, disability is the most important thing for us at this time.
Arts should reflect the diversity of a pluralistic society that we live in. Through our disability arts programmes, we aim to strengthen the international profile of UK as a recognised global leader in the area of disability arts and take part in building a more inclusive and diverse arts ecosystem in Indonesia.
Our scope of work:
- Skills sharing and collaboration
- Promoting artworks by disabled artists
- Advocating inclusivity and accessibility within the mainstream arts sector
Our activity encompasses networking visits, creative residencies, public events, research, workshops, and outreach programmes.
We work across the spectrum of influence, including policy, institutions, and individuals, by stressing the values of inclusion and equality which are key to the British Council.
The British Council supports and actively promotes use of the Social Model of disability.
