Last year I was the recipient of an Individual Artist Grant from the Asian Cultural Council in New York that enabled me to live and work in Dhaka, Bangladesh from October to December 2016. My project was to research the garment factory industry by focusing upon women who survived the 2012 Tazreen Factory Fire. It was the deadliest fire in Bangladeshi history and was nearly identical to a garment factory fire that took place in New York City nearly 100 years earlier called the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. I took the attached photo last month on the ground floor of the Tazreen Fashions...

Damn, there was a lot. As soon as I stepped on the plane for Beirut with a lively Belgian delegation of almost 20 people, I was overwhelmed. This was in part due to my job. I am a writer and playwright, and so on a regular work day I hold a pencil for eight hours and move within the contours of an A4, often within an even smaller surface, when I use a yellowy American legal pad or simply read a book.

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in the United States, in partnership with the National Arts and Disability Center (NADC) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), held an online conversation with three hundred and ninety registrants representing artists, arts administrators, arts organizations, arts educators, arts employers, and disability organizations about how to increase the career preparation and employment of people with disabilities in the arts. This report summarises the main findings.

Unlimited’s Senior Producer Jo Verrent speaks at Evolve, a symposium looking at the use of identity and labels within the arts. Here, she gives her personal and professional take on language, disability and labels, exploring if ‘disability’ is seen as a dirty word…

There are bleak realities behind the façade of some performing and visual artist’s successful international careers: the manic, frenzied life, the insecurity and fear of hyper-mobility and residency- or studio-hopping. What are some of the strategies to have more sustainability in artists’ working conditions? Band-aid solutions might be short-sighted. It is time for a radical re-imagining of the system.

A systematic literature review of contributions to the arts and cultural sector which have appeared in accounting journals shows that the evaluation of the artistic performance of publicly funded arts organizations is not a purely procedural and technical issues relating to the production of better performance information, but it is above all a substantive and political one relating to the nature of the arts and the function of publicly funded arts organizations in individual communities and in society in general.

What will the Trump administration mean for arts, culture and entertainment? How bleak — or not — is the outlook for everything? Will Congress, solidly under total Republican control, actually follow through on their decades-long threat to defund the National Endowment for the Arts?

Diversity is the in-vogue theme for the cultural industry, becoming an exercise in ill-thought-out, quick responses to stage diversity rather than as an opportunity to re-imagine the entire sector. It has become painfully obvious that the sector’s increasing self-awareness and subsequent panic, has caused a scramble towards superficial diversity, rather than an opportunity to dismantle the frameworks that created the systemic exclusion to begin with.
