Programme Support

Shape Arts

Toni works full time supporting the delivery of the Unlimited programme and is based at Shape Arts. Alongside the team, Toni is developing the ‘Allies Scheme’ and is a key contact for some of Unlimited artists. Toni is excited to learn about how accessibility can be embedded and championed in the creative sector and in all aspects of life. Her personal interests lie in literature, discourse and has a passion for exploring the intersections of Art and Law.

Ellie Liddell-Crewe (She/Her)

Project Manager

Artsadmin

Ellie works full time on Unlimited at Artsadmin. Amongst many things, Ellie is responsible for Unlimited’s main commissions programme, application process and portal, budgets and contracts and holds overall responsibility for artists support and showcasing- helping as many Unlimited artists as possible to reach audiences both nationally and internationally. Other responsibilities include being a key contact for artists and managing the Artsadmin side of our international work. With her own cross-disciplinary practice embedded in inclusive arts she is excited for everything that lies ahead and is aware that she has very big shoes to fill and not very big feet to fill them.

April Lin (They/Them)

Trainee

Artsadmin

April works full-time as a trainee at Unlimited, based at Artsadmin, meaning that they get to explore all the nooks and crannies of sustaining a care-ful working environment in the arts. Among many other things, they are a key contact for artists, as well a contributor of social media posts, newsletters, and blog posts. Their personal creative practice is in moving image, and an essential part of their filmmaking is envisioning and materialising the more just and holistic worlds-to-come — an intention and energy which aligns nicely with their work at Unlimited!

Marlo Savin (He/Him)

Trainee

Shape Arts

Marlo is one of our full-time trainees at Unlimited, based at Shape Arts. He is a key contact for artists and deals with some of the communication aspects of Unlimited, such as updating and maintaining our blogs and social media. As a trainee, though, his role goes much further! He is looking forward to exploring all aspects of working in disability arts and the responsibilities that come from it. His main interest is in culture, its history, and how our identities can intersect and be shaped by our collective culture. Marlo has also been performing since he was 14 and so has had the chance to work with many amazing artists and is looking forward to meeting more.
