DAN (Disabled Artists' Network)

DAN is a continuation of Wolf Photography's project 'Living with PTSD' which was a series of exhibitions and workshops funded by Arts Council England and The National Lottery. You can find out more about the former exhibition and activities on http://www.wolf-photography.com/html/exhibition_lwptsd.html.

DAN is run by Wolf Photography, a company that promotes creativity as a coping mechanism for disability.  The ICCA have kindly allowed me to use the Atrium as an exhibition venue for this project.  DAN has been setup to enable disabled and non-disabled artists to exhibit their art and share their experience of how creativity has either helped them cope with disability or enriched their lives and provided a sense of well being.  Disabled artists will not be charged any money to exhibit with DAN.  There is no charge to exhibit with DAN. We also hold monthly get-togethers that are listed on the Wolf Photography Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Wolf.Photographer/.

Once you have completed your application pack, you will be contacted and invited to exhibit with the project if your work compliments the ambience and the aims of the project.

Purpose
To provide online resources for artists
To evidence creativity as a coping mechanism for disability or to provide a sense of well-being
To raise awareness of disabilities, particularly mental health
And to fight the stigma people with disabiities face, particulary those with invisible wounds.

Exhibition Costs

There is no charge to exhibit with DAN. Applicants must provide a written narrative on how creativity helps them to cope with disability or has provided a sense of well being (for non-disabled people) as part of their exhibition (maximum 1 sheet of A4 - font size 14). Please be aware that you do not have to make your art available for sale. The main focus is on sharing your vision - not selling it.

Should you sell your art via the exhibitions with us, we hope that you'll make a voluntary contribution towards the project. Funds raised from this joint venture will go towards running this project in the long term, as well as raising awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and promoting creativity as a coping mechanism for disability.

To arrange a consultation, please contact 'Wolf' Sunkmanitu direct on 07971 99 77 10 or email wolf (at) wolf-photography.com.

If you would like to donate to the cause, there is a collection box at the venue and you could always buy art from the venue or prints and books listed on this site.
