Nott Normal is responding to this time when the idea of ‘normal’ has changed so much for so many. This is particularly true for a lot of people who already live with extra barriers to access because of lasting injury, chronic health conditions, physical or mental differences, or disabilities. The corona crisis places extra challenges before us as an organisation and as individuals but it also offers opportunities to address lurking issues about access for those homebound and otherwise isolated. Originality can come from restriction. So, while we have both been forced to shield (stay in completely for 3+ months) due to a collection of underlying conditions, we have been re-envisioning two projects. We are building resilience for whatever the future may hold. It may not be ‘normal’ as we know it but together we can make it safer and more inclusive as we explore different art in diverse ways.
