Further Afield: Remote Access with Abi Palmer at the Level Centre


The second in series of three online events that explore the experiences of disabled artists who live and practice in rural areas across the country.

Further Afield is produced in collaboration with our Artistic Associate Bella Milroy. This series of three online events explores the experiences of disabled artists who live and practice in rural areas across the country.

The events are free to join and take place on Zoom. Hosted by Bella, each event is designed to prompt discussion and look at ways that collaboratively we can affect change within the arts. We’ve invited a different rurally-based guest speaker along to each event who will share their story and take questions alongside Bella. The event will be captioned and there will be a BSL interpreter on screen, we’ll also be recording the event and sharing the videos here on the LEVEL website.

Session 2: Remote Access with Abi Palmer

The second in a three part series exploring the lived experiences of disabled artists and creatives based in rural Derbyshire and further afield.

About the Guest Speaker:

Abi Palmer is an writer, artist and filmmaker. Her work often uses multisensory interaction and play to explore themes of disability, access intimacy and queer culture.

Her debut book Sanatorium (Penned in the Margins, 2020) is a fragmented memoir, jumping between luxury thermal pool, and blue inflatable bathtub. It was shortlisted for the  Barbellion Prize. Her art installationCrip Casino – an interactive gambling arcade parodying the wellness industry and institutionalised spaces. It has been exhibited at Tate Modern, Somerset House and Wellcome Collection. It is currently installed at Collective, Edinburgh.

Her current work explores themes of access, isolation and the urgency of climate change, through attempting to capture, distil and convey the entire outside world into small ritualistic performances and sculpture for her indoor cats.

In 2020 Palmer was awarded an Artangel ‘Thinking Time’ Grant to address the current pandemic. In 2021 she was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s ‘Awards for Artists.’ She is represented by RCW Literary Agency.
