Presented by Dada-South, in partnership with Artpoint, Go Public is a bespoke public realm programme committed to commissioning and profiling the work of disabled and Deaf artists in the South East.
Go Public consisted of an open submission process, the development of three public realm projects led by three disabled and Deaf artists, the investment of professional development bursaries for four disabled/Deaf artists and the staging of a development seminar profiling and debating disability and the public realm.
“Gaining a Go Public award has been an absolute honour which I’ve relished amidst the steep learning curve.”
Sarah Scott, Artist, Go Public
"The commission has greatly encouraged me to develop my artistic context and my conceptual and contemporary understanding of art and culture...
The Go Public blog feels, to me, like the perfect place to offer some incredible insights; insights often ignored by those with little concept of how the exclusion of disabled people can inhibit the development of an exciting contemporary society. One thing I can tell you is that my journey is one of pure fascination, curiosity and an increasing sense of identity. I wouldn't change it for anything.”
