Getting Involved

Membership of #WeShallNotBeRemoved is free, open to all individual D/deaf, neurodiverse and disabled creative practitioners and disability/inclusive focused organisations operating in the UK’s creative industries with over 700 members.

Our aim was to provide a voice for creative disabled people during the pandemic and to fight for an inclusive recovery. Whilst there is much still to achieve, #WeShallNotBeRemoved is turning the dial down and pausing, giving way to established disabled led and inclusive arts organisations to step up and make the case as we begin to move out of the pandemic.
