Unlimited is a London-based arts commissioning programme that enables new work by disabled artists to reach UK and international audiences. Unlimited supports socially and politically engaged ambitious creative projects by outstanding disabled artists and companies including theatre, dance, music, literature, performance, painting, sculpture, public artworks, photography, digital artworks, installations, films and more. The programme is delivered in partnership by London-based and disabled-led organisations Shape Arts and Artsadmin.
Unlimited wants to change perceptions of disabled people by commissioning disabled artists in the UK and internationally to make new, ground-breaking and high quality work. They also do this by building a community of Unlimited Allies who help them to embed the work of disabled artists in the mainstream cultural sector and improve access for artists and audiences. They offer funding for research and development, to make small and large-scale projects happen in the UK and around the world, and awards for emerging artists who are new to art, early-career or haven’t had reached large audiences yet. They also fund full commissions (from an artist’s idea through to its realisation and touring) and commissions created through international collaborations.
