visual artist and arts manager of DASh
What makes a good leader?
Someone who listens, and can create and instigate a vision with the people. Tony Heaton is a great leader as he motivates listens and does what he says he’s going to.
Is leadership different for disabled people?
It is within a disabling world. Experiences make us passionate about making changes and choices in a society that still revels in seeing and treating disabled people and disabled artists on a lesser plane than non disabled people.
Do disabled people experience barriers to leadership that non disabled people don’t experience?
There are but sometimes they are so entrenched in our psyche that to be a leader sometimes feels like being on a battlefield of flesh.
