For artists and practitioners over the age of 18 years with Disabilities, Chronic Illnesses or Injuries.
Transforming Broken Wings (TBW) is being proposed and developed as a supportive international and interdisciplinary art network, where artists and practitioners with disabilities, chronic illnesses or injuries can give and receive transformative help, as they also contribute to make, share or facilitate art work with others. TBW was initiated in Feb 2023 by Krisztina Ferencz and members of 'Growing Intercultural Roots in Communities' with a lived experience and is being supported by Intercultural Roots for Public Health (UK Registered Charity Number 1179885).
We have created a questionnaire that is intended to survey the collective needs of potential TBW members so that we can apply for funding, resources and support to plan and better support the network. Should you opt-in, your preferred name or nickname and email address will be used to add you to our online Basecamp platform that allows asynchronous conversation and access to shared resources and planning tools. It will also help us plan for the best time of the week for most people to attend future meetings and to add you to the Zoom meeting schedule, with meetings recorded as appropriate and shared on our Basecamp platform for those who can't attend.

TBW is currently being supported voluntarily by the artists with lived experience involved and Intercultural Roots' core team. This is unsustainable as costs are already being incurred and will increase as the network grows. We are actively seeking donors, sponsors, funders and supporters.
