DATCE (Disability Artists Training Creative Enablers) – training programme
DATCE was a pilot project that I ran with filmpro ltd (2011/12) that provided training to a pool of creative individuals to work as ‘creative enablers’, supported by the London Evening Standard’s Dispossessed Fund.
The concept of a ‘Creative Enabler’ came from Graeae Theatre Company and referred to someone who facilitates disabled artists to create and present their work, rather than providing the personal care.
18 individuals and disabled artist joined the programme which provided skills, tools and understanding of working with disabled artists and/or creative enablers, and placements of Trainee Creative Enablers working with a Disabled Artists covering specific and personalized training.
All participants received mentoring support throughout the life-time of the project.
