Access Unpacked Seminar – Video Recordings

Presented by Chrysalis Arts Development & Outside In
Artists’ talks and discussions on access and barriers.

September 2019

In September we invited the artists exhibiting in our Hard Wired exhibition to Whitby Museum to tell us more about their work and experiences.  The artists shared their personal journeys and dove into the themes of access and barriers in the art world. Below you’ll find the recordings of the artists’ talks, panel and performance from the day.

Speakers: Drew Fox, Anthony Stevens, Lynn Cox

Panel members including Phil Baird, Lucy Barker, Jenny McCarthy and Ian Sherman

The Hard Wired exhibition is a partnership between Chrysalis Arts Development and Outside In.

Audiences and artists alike face barriers accessing the art world. Through its Art Unpacked series, Chrysalis Arts Development has championed bringing high-quality art to rural areas and small towns. Through utilising spaces, such as libraries, the exhibition series has made art more accessible to a wider public.

Outside In is an award-winning charity helping artists facing barriers by giving them a platform. They provide artists with development opportunities, exhibitions and training. Working together on Hard Wired, both organisations are striving to break down barriers, and make art more accessible.
