Creating Change

We support arts organisations to make their work more inclusive of disabled and neurodivergent artists and audiences, through providing access training, consultancy, and Easy Read translation.

Supporting Artists

We reinvest any profit into supporting disabled and neurodivergent artists to maintain a professional practice, by providing access services; supporting artist-led projects, and making small grants.

Our services are available on a free and subsidised basis to artists based in Scotland.

They are available on a non-subsidised, but affordable, basis to artists who are not based in Scotland.

Who we are

We are a disabled-led social enterprise dedicated to promoting inclusivity and supporting disabled and neurodivergent artists to thrive.

We believe that:

  • Disabled and neurodivergent people are the experts in our own experiences
  • Disabled and neurodivergent artists’ careers are held back by a lack of accessibility
  • The arts can, should and must be made more inclusive for both artists and audiences
  • That inclusivity is for the whole sector, not just “disability arts”

Door in the Wall Arts Access CIC grew out of director Tzipporah’s work with Neuk Collective, a neurodivergent artist collective.

At Neuk, she encountered a real need for lived-experience-led support for organisations that want to work more inclusively; and also for help for disabled artists to overcome the additional barriers we face to make a career in the arts. She has worked with arts organisations across the UK and abroad to embed access in their work.

We are proud to be a social enterprise – all our profits are reinvested into supporting disabled and neurodivergent artists in Scotland.
