Further details:

Creative Future is a charity that supports marginalised and disabled artists and writers  – those who experience mental health problems, substance misuse issues, learning or physical disabilities, long-term unemployment or social exclusion of any kind. We run two biennial events to promote the work of disabled and marginalised  artists : The Impact Art Fair, the only art fair in the UK solely featuring the work of disabled and disadvantaged artists, and The Tight Modern, a miniature replica of the Tate Modern highlighting 50 disabled artists. We decided it was about time we had an event to showcase the wonderful work of marginalised and disabled writers, hence the Creative Future Literary Awards. Funding from the Arts Council made it a reality and now we’re excitedly looking forward to seeing what work comes in.
