What We Do

University of Atypical have been monitoring advice and guidelines around COVID-19 from arts bodies as well as disability organisations, and have taken the decision to suspend all outreach, projects, events and exhibitions with immediate effect. Please check our social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram –  for updates.

University of Atypical is a disabled-led arts charity, taking an empowerment based approach towards supporting disabled and D/deaf people’s involvement in the arts. The organisation specialises in developing and promoting the work of disabled and D/deaf artists and in reaching disabled and D/deaf audiences.
