Event Description


Access Forum: Jo Verrent
Thursday 2 February, 6-8pm
Japan Room, Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff


For our next forum, we're welcoming a guest speaker, Jo Verrent, to talk to us about creating work, producing work, making work accessible, reaching new audiences... the list is potentially endless!

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion with Jo.

The venue is fully accessible, and Sheryll Holley will be our Palantypist, providing remote live captioning throughout.

If you have any questions about access for the event, please get in touch with Rhian on rhianlewis@nationaltheatrewales.org

Jo believes that ‘different’ is delicious not divergent. She works in arts & culture at strategic levels embedding the belief that diversity adds texture, turning policy into real action.

Jo is the senior producer for Unlimited, the world’s largest commissions programme for disabled artists based in the UK.

Working with Sarah Pickthall, she created SHORT CIRCUIT – fusing disabled artistry and digital acumen, PUSH ME – a series of shorts and SYNC examining the interplay between disability and leadership.

She is also a practicing artist, creating the award winning Take Me to Bed with Luke Pell which is now touring internationally.

Jo has won both Cosmopolitan’s woman of achievement award and her village’s cup for making jam.
