The work of Without Walls is deeply embedded in Arts Council England’s mission to achieve great art and culture for everyone:
“Our mission is great art and culture for everyone - we can only achieve this if we make a commitment to promoting and embedding diversity throughout the work we fund and support. We call this the Creative Case for Diversity.”
“The Creative Case is a re-imagining of the Arts Council’s approach to diversity and equality, setting out how these areas can and should enrich the arts for artists, audiences and our wider society. The Creative Case for Diversity is a way of exploring how organisations and artists can enrich the work they do by embracing a wide range of influences and practices.”
We aim to support our commissioned artists and festival partners to embed accessibility in their programmes, through a programme of collaborative training sessions, support through additional resources, and sharing practical recommendations.
