Unlimited Impact DIY

Unlimited Impact, Live Art Development Agency and Colchester Arts Centre are teaming up to invite disabled-led proposals for DIY projects that are simply extraordinary. Proposals could be about disability, activism and advocacy, or could equally be about none of those things. Up to you. The only stipulation is that the proposal is disabled-led. The project should take place in Colchester and can have access to Firstsite or Colchester Arts Centre as a base if needed. If required, an additional access budget is available for the artists and/or participants.
This project is led by Live Art Development Agency with support by Unlimited Impact and Colchester Arts Centre. For further information please contact Anthony Roberts.


DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual training and professional development projects for other artists.

We are pleased to announce that in 2015 DIY awards will increase by 50%, with each DIY project receiving £1,500 support.

Deadline for proposals to run DIY 12: 2015 projects: Noon Thursday April 9th, 2015.
