Solidarity of Hope

Solidarity of Hope Llanelli

Through visual art, performance, and a soundscape Solidarity of Hope – I see you is a multi-disciplinary live art, sound, and digital performance that places professional disabled artists centre stage to express the challenges and hopes of the moment. Underpinning the performance will be the notion that disabled and vulnerable individuals “do not wish to be erased” and are now connecting, as an empowering force, to share their stories of physical and psychological survival. Through the many challenges they encounter, the performance will ultimately celebrate the abundant strengths that members of the collective draw upon to survive and retain their sense of hope. Solidarity of Hope Collective formed in 2022 to unite Dutch, Welsh, and UK creatives. Performance Artists: Rachel Gadsden Helen Roeten Violin: Emily Earl Composer, Videography, Lighting Design: Freddie Meyers Solidarity of Hope Artists: Samantha Dinsdale-Brown Rachel Gadsden Emily-Jane Hillman Grietje Margreet Killian Miek Knook Jill Powell Tina R Helen Roeten Jordan Sallis Linda & Bethany Sutton Margo van Strijp Rach Wellbeing Elly Wright With thanks to our funders: Arts Council of Wales Disability Arts Cymru The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the United Kingdom The Living Museum, Alkmaar


A surreal painter by nature, my creative artwork has evolved from my feelings and dreams. Benefitting from a mixed media approach it has incorporated surrealism, sculpture, animation, humour, illustration, the exploration of alternative realities and automatic painting. As a neurodiverse artist, my creativity has been an integrel part of my achieving good mental health.
