Disconsortia is a consortium of disabled artists who want their work to be seen on their terms, to develop and share a sense of community to bring about a greater presence, and to be a bigger louder voice for disability in the arts.

We are here to support each other, to create platforms for the work of disabled artists and to support venues to embed that work into their programmes. 

Disconsortia will be BSL Interpreted.
