Celebrating the artistic vision and creativity of disabled artists

Unlimited showcases outstanding dance, performance, comedy, music and visual art, by disabled artists and companies.

We’ve presented Unlimited festival at the Southbank Centre since 2012, working in partnership with the Unlimited commissioning fund, who commission extraordinary work by disabled artists. Their mission is to do so until the whole of the cultural sector does so.

This biennial festival is a showcase for the ambitious creative projects produced by disabled artists and companies that span across the arts and include new commissions, existing work and bespoke one-off events.

In its use of the term ‘disabled artist’, Unlimited includes work by artists who identify as being disabled, D/deaf, neurodivergent and those experiencing chronic illness, mental health conditions and more. We understand that different people prefer different terminology and we subscribe to the social model of disability.
