About the role

This is a new role to begin developing processes that are committed to supporting artists and audiences who are Disabled, d/Deaf, neurodivergent and with long-term health conditions.

CCA is currently in the process of challenging ableism and exclusion in order for us to create and support inclusive and accessible exhibitions and events. We would like to operate from the point of view of access intimacy – that access isn’t an individual’s need but a common capacity shared between us all and learn to reframe our understanding of disability.

The ideal candidate will be familiar with our work, and passionate about the arts, access and inclusion. We strongly encourage people with lived experience to apply for this role and will prioritise applications from disabled people. This role is funded through a grant by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
