Creative Connections

The Intersectional Identities project is an 18 month project looking at D/deaf, Black, and Welsh speaking people and how these identities overlap (intersect). We have looked at this in terms of audiences, people working in the arts sector, and arts organisations. 

For this project we are focusing on the cross over of Deaf, Black, and Welsh-speaking identities; and exploring how someone who identifies as more than one of these groups is treated by the arts and cultural sectors. 

The project has 6 partners:

Deaf Hub Wales, Eisteddfod Genedlaethol Cymru, Krystal S. Lowe, National Dance Company Wales, Taking Flight Theatre Company and The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds Wales (RSPB).

Written by: Krystal S. Lowe, Alys Parsons, and Sandra Bendelow
With support from Nadia Nur, Karema Ahmed, and Stephanie Bailey-Scott

Funded by the Arts Council Wales and The National Dance Foundation of Bermuda.
