Pitch and Mix – Celebrating work in progress

As part of Southbank Centre’s Unlimited Festival, we ran three Pitch and Mix events. Pitch and Mix offered an opportunity to get insight into projects in development by disabled artists that Unlimited is supporting. For artists, it provides a vital opportunity to show their in-progress work to an industry audience and make connections to take it further. Harry Murdoch tells us more…

Pitch and Mix was programmed in a morning slot so viewers could take in art with their breakfast across three days of the festival. Each event featured four artists, all in receipt of funds from Unlimited, showing their work to date through a pre-recorded pitch, followed by a live Q&A. These were fantastic sessions, giving us a real insight into the artists’ work. We know from past events that these really do make a difference, and that new connections between artists and organisations are forged here. All three of the Pitch and Mix sessions were recorded and are now available to watch back.
