Yesterday 90 CEOs, artistic directors, arts professionals and artists from around the country came together in Norwich for Breaking Down The Barriers – The Arts, Disability and Change.

As part of this conference we wanted to galvanise and inspire positive action. So after each panel conversation we asked delegates to share a priority action or change that they had been inspired to make, as a result of what they've heard, said, or thought about during the discussion. 

These were then posted on a 'Future Wall', and collected by the team and collated into a live, crowd-source 'manifesto', which was finished (after some frantic typing!) and given out at the end of the day as a takeaway for delegates.

In the spirit of the conference we want to share this manifesto far and wide, to encourage as many people as possible to be inspired to create change within their organisations, or their practice. You can download the manifesto here.

You can see more about Breaking Down the Barriers here. Keep an eye on the blog, as we will be uploading photos from the day, and all of the 'Postcards from an Inclusive Future' written by delegates next week!
