FYI: Opportunities and Jobs

If you are interested in Accentuate… then Pitch up!

Sync South East is an Accentuate project that has been working hard for two years to support and develop disabled artists, arts workers, projects and organisations to be the best they can be. As part of Accentuate, it’s looking to create a cultural shift around disability in the way we all include, involve and inspire. And we want you to be part of that shift too.

Everyone connected to Accentuate is looking for collaborators, partners, artists, others, speakers and contacts. Our final event - Pitch! - provides a one stop opportunity for you to pitch up and get sorted. 

Pitch! is on 15th June 2011. We can offer you pitches, provocations and persuasion from 30 disabled artists and arts workers and 10 disability-specific organisations and projects – far too good an opportunity to miss! There will be performances, displays, discussions and debates, plenty of time for networking, and lunch too.
