Introduction to the Sound of Disability / 3 July 2014

Welcome all, to my brand new blog on Disability Arts Online. Over the next few months, I will be working on a very exciting new commission for the British Paraorchestra and a major UK symphony orchestra. 

You can read Trish Wheatley's reflections on the Paraorchestra's first ever gig two years ago here, and watch a Channel 4 documentary about the orchestra here

As well as charting the progress of the project, the video blogs will raise issues and debates around disability art. This is where you, the reader, can play a part.

If you have any experiences or thoughts you'd like to see discussed in the video blogs, then leave a comment below, or if you'd prefer, contact Disability Arts Online directly who will forward it to me. 

I look forward to hearing from you!
