The First Ever Disability Unite Got Talent Artist Contest

May 5, 2021
Source: Disability Unite

Can you believe we’re coming up on one year since the first ever Disability Unite Festival? As we began to plan for this year’s event, we found ourselves sifting through last year’s emails, the incredible artist submissions, interviews and more, and were flooded with gratitude for the continued community input and participation that created a meaningful, powerful and enjoyable community celebration.

Our vision for the 2021 Disability Unite Festival is even brighter and bolder, and built to create an even more inclusive community through fan-based artist representation at the festival. To do that we are hosting our first-ever Disability Unite Got Talent Artist Contest on social media representing the fan-favorites and discovering new and amazing talents to include in the upcoming festival.

This contest is open to all artists and makers that belong to the Disability Community and/or non-disabled allies who advocate for it (even yourself!). Whether an emerging or established artist, student or graduate, dancer, performer, visual artist or comedian -- we welcome all disciplines to join in as we hope to achieve three goals:

  • First, we want our community to have direct involvement in the artist selection process so the audience will enjoy seeing performances of the artists they vote for.
  • Second, Disability Unite strives to promote representation of people with disabilities in the arts, media, sports, business and every other field. We know many emerging artists need a “big break” -- that opportunity to gain recognition in the music or performing arts industry. Through this contest we hope many emerging disabled artists can utilize this exposure to benefit their careers.
  • Third, by seeking out disabled artists to perform, disabled people and non-disabled allies can create systemic change as we grow a “fandom” and generate audience demand for disability representation in the arts.
