On Wednesday afternoon Daniel and I were in Kentish Town, North London, to meet Tony Heaton, the Chief Executive of Shape. Shape is the major arts and disability charity, based in London, which works to support disabled people as artists and audience members. Shape is involved in running ‘Unlimited’ – the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad disability arts programme. We talked with Tony about showcasing some of the achievements of ‘Unlimited’ (particularly the five Unlimited International projects) within the annual conference of Amateo: the European Network for Active Participation in Cultural Activities, which Voluntary Arts is hosting in London in June. Tony also agreed to take part in a session within the Amateo Conference which will look at the involvement of disabled people in amateur arts groups across Europe.
