I have an invisible disability (chronic pain), and I need to rest (a lot).

I find it difficult to be out in the world unless I lie down and rest when I need to: on trains, in galleries, on benches. Sometimes I get kick back, and sometimes I get moved on.

I will be designing an installation which will question the etiquette of our public spaces, and will attempt to create a resting space within a larger public space.

Our vision? Nothing less than a network of public spaces that welcome horizontality. I am working with Ovalhouse (London), Tobacco Factory Theatre (Bristol), South East Dance & Unlimited.

If you have chronic pain or an invisible disability, please tell us about what would make your local arts centre truly accessible to you in this short questionnaire.

Thank you!
