A central mission for The DisOrdinary Architecture Project is to build the capacity of disabled artists who are interested in the built environment and spatial justice, so they can work more creatively and effectively in this field. We aim to increase confidence in dealing with built environment specialists and issues; to enhance possibilities for future work; and to inform artists’ own practices. We aim to do this by:

  • Creating more funded opportunities for artists to co-partner with built environment students, educators and practitioners in a variety of contexts and locations, underpinned by their own creative practice and experiences;
  • Providing training and mentoring support to build the capacity of artists to engage creatively and effectively across a wide range of built environment sector opportunities.

I very much enjoyed the three days exploration. I learnt so much!

I would like to add my thanks and excitement to be in the room during the Architecture Beyond Sight workshop, with such essential and inspiring work being done by everyone participating, and to thank The DisOrdinary Architecture Project and the Bartlett for allowing it to happen.

We are in the process of developing and testing  training and mentoring programmes, which we hope to offer from 2019.  To get in touch with us if you would like to get involved, go to Contact.
