Culture in Quarantine Commissions

BBC & UK Arts Councils celebrate the work of disabled artists with Culture in Quarantine commissions

The Arts Council NI has partnered with BBC Arts and The Space Arts to offer Northern Ireland artists, Alice McCullough, Shannon Yee and Joel Simon the opportunity to create new work as part of BBC Arts’ Culture In Quarantine initiative.

The commissioning programme was established in a partnership between BBC Arts, Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales and Creative Scotland to mark the 25th anniversary of the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act into law. The commissions will champion the work of disabled artists by helping them produce work when some may have been self-isolating, and provide a platform to explore their experiences of living through Covid-19.
