Creating Time Awards for D/deaf & Disabled Artists (closed)

Creating Time Awards for d/Deaf and Disabled Artists    

The Creating Time Awards for D/deaf and disabled artists is managed by the University of Atypical on behalf of Unlimited and The Paul Hamlyn Foundation. The Awards aim to provide much needed financial support to D/deaf and disabled artists at a time when their potential to generate income has been seriously impacted by the closure of art galleries, theatres, music venues and other creative outlets due to Covid-19.

Through the University of Atypical’s support, D/deaf and disabled artists have developed unique artwork of extremely high artistic quality. Many artists have gone on to attract other types of funding, some to the level where international recognition has been achieved.
