Sync Thinking...

Wednesday 26th January, 2011

Roadsign saying leadership

One of the main functions of Sync is to energise, inform and ultimately change generic leadership development - making it more open, accessible, relevant and applicable to all. Hence Sync Thinking…

Sync are hosting a small event on 8th March, at the Wellcome Centre in London to look at the impact of disabled leaders and the programme itself. Rather than offering an opportunity to hear from a series of inspiring disabled leaders about their journeys, Sync have instead curated some snapshots – disabled leaders and those they work with, inspire, and work in partnerships with. In this way, they aim to look at the impact of the work of the last few years – what has been noticed, what has altered and where is change still needed? Speakers include:

  • Caroline Cardus (visual artist who recently gained a residency at the Baltic through Shape’s Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary),

  • Rachel Gadsden (the first artist in Residence for Parlimentary Outreach, who recently gained a Without Walls Commission for a new outdoor performance),

  • Simon McKeown (DADAFest’s artist of the year 2010 whose digital art piece Motion Disabled was shown in 17 countries simultaneously on Dec 3rd 2010),

  • Jenny Sealey MBE, Artistic Director of Graeae and her protégée Rachel Bagshaw who is now directing at the Young Vic,

  • Mark Barbar, learning disabled dancer and employee of Anjali Dance

  • Stephanie Fuller, Head of Development, Arts Council England, South East,

  • Deepa Shastri, who has undertaken a Leading in London Placement at LOCOG/Shape and also works for STAGETEXT,

  • and Jon Adams, Artist in Residence at University of Portsmouth and currently involved in a number of projects linked to the Cultural Olympiad in the South East, including encouraging large numbers of people to create forests of flags from books.

The day will be extensively documented for web dissemination on our site - although anyone interested in seeing if there is space available to attend is encouraged to email [email protected] with Sync thinking as the subject line.
