Featuring Dr Bree Hadley, Racheal Missingham and Dan Daw, unpacking what disability-led or d/Deaf-led means in a creative context, this conversation went into what ‘disability-led’ means for a creative project and how it can positively impact those involved.
It touched on the impact of representation in a leadership role and how it supports artists with disability/who are D/deaf in the rehearsal room and on the stage. It will also discuss what it means for allies in the space. What is the role of a person without disability in a disability-led space?
The Feedback Conversation features artists Lauren Watson, David Truong, alongside Brisbane Festival Artistic Director Louise Bezzina and Queensland Theatre Artistic Director Lee Lewis.
This conversation was designed to ask the artists about how the feedback process during creative development impacts them and their work, and to ask the industry guests what they look for in a work-in-progress/creative development showing. Sometimes it is hard to ask for feedback, it can make artists feel anxious or nervous about their work. Also discussed, the intersection of arts and disability in the work of artists with disability and/or who are d/Deaf, and how this may impact the feedback process.
