Across Difference. The artist will work closely with a composer and a  
technologist to devise and facilitate a week of workshops with young  
disabled musicians at the Roundhouse in Camden .

This project is part of a larger season of work with to culminate in  
a mixed media performance at Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood, co- 
created and performed by all participants in March 2009. With this in  
mind it is envisaged that the visual work will take the form of a  
live, generative or recorded video work to be projected as part of  
the final performance.

the creative possibilities of the crossovers between audio and visual  
expression and of exchange and collaboration between participants  
with a range of abilities and experience.

The following skills and experience are highly desirable:

- Experience of working in an outreach/ education setting, ideally  
with disabled people
