Open calls and opportunities

Artists with access requirements applying to CCA opportunities are warmly invited to email [email protected] to let us know of any access requirements you may have to reduce any barriers in making your application to a CCA Opportunity. If you feel it is appropriate you are welcome to share an access rider. We are researching good practice for supporting artists with access needs and we will update this page accordingly.
