Beginning with an introduction to her practice and experience of disability arts, artist, facilitator and activist Ellie Page will talk to Castlefield Gallery Associates about access docs. Starting from the very basics of what is an access doc? to who uses them and why? before sharing advice and tips on how to approach writing your own.


Ellie Page is a freelance artist, producer, facilitator and activist based in Manchester. An experienced youth worker and mental health practitioner, she had to step down her Social Work practice following worsening health conditions and mobility difficulties. This led to a successful freelance career which she continues alongside her other work. She worked enthusiastically as Project Coordinator of the UK Disability Arts Alliance over the pandemic, and is a co-founding Director of TRIAD³, a virtual arts studio with two fellow disabled artists. Ellie recently graduated with an MSc Psychology, and plans to continue her research in alternative approaches to ‘psychosis’ at PhD level. She manages the North-West Hub for Outside In, working with artists who face significant barriers to the arts world, and continues to work as a freelance writer and arts producer.
