1. Challenges and opportunities for Careers in the Arts

Collaboration with + Support to Existing Creative Pro Pipelines

There are some grants and awards and funding streams, organizations etc to encourage women in film (WIFV or Geena Davis Institute, the Directors List) and/or minorities in film. Some groups are well established with great educational programs. I'm talking about non-disability film-related organizations with successful history in supporting and promoting individual artists and their work.


Funding/Supporting Disability programs/orgs to do the same, may be helpful, but pushing (via funding disability applicants or disability projects etc) within these existing programs to ACTIVELY include disability could ensure a more integrated approach to the industry (esp. one that doesn't have strong disability representation yet thereby taking advantage of these organizations networks), build more accessible industry systems and create a better pipeline mechanism.
