Unlimited celebrates the artistic vision and originality of disabled artists. It dates back to 2012, when Unlimited was one of the highlights of the Cultural Olympiad. It is now firmly embedded in Southbank Centre’s Festival cycle, returning in 2014 and 2016, with further Arts Council funding now secured until 2020.
At the heart of Unlimited is a commissions programme, which supports established, emerging and international disabled artists across all artforms. The programme aims to embed work by disabled artists within the cultural sector, reach new audiences and shift perceptions of disabled people.
Unlimited is delivered by Shape Arts and Artsadmin. It is funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Arts Council of Wales and Creative Scotland.
The British Council and Arts Council England funds Unlimited International. Spirit of 2012 funds Unlimited Impact to support young people, extend geographic reach and ensure legacy.
