Collaborations! is inspired by the values behind the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games and brings together artists, athletes and young people from the UK and abroad to create innovative new works.

Collaborations! is one of fifteen Accentuate projects taking place between 2009- 2012. The project aims to offer new opportunities for disabled young people to take part in collaborative creative activities with their peers in the UK and abroad. By encouraging new collaborations between disabled artists, emerging and established, and athletes, the work will offer a platform for dialogue as well as develop the practice of artists in the region. Furthermore, this first phase will provide new experiences for nearly 500 young people around the South East through consultations, workshops and performances.
