Digital Horizon Masterclasses
University of Atypical for Arts and Disability have five brand-new exciting Digital Horizon Masterclasses for our Autumn-Winter programme. Digital Horizon is a professional development programme funded by the Santander Foundation’s Digital and Financial Empowerment Fund. The Digital Horizon programme is supporting the Arts and Disability sector to pursue new ambitions using digital technology.
The Masterclasses are peer-led by artists who are d/Deaf, Disabled or Neurodiverse. Masterclass Leaders are selected because of their exceptional skills in their particular artform area and for their personal experience as a disabled person. The new season of Masterclasses cover music collaboration online, animation, sound-scaping, apps for people with dyslexia, and painting skills with digital tools.
