Podcast 15 Becoming Richard Burton

Podcast 15 | Becoming Richard Burton & Disability in the Arts

In this episode we’re thinking about narrative, from the process of curating an exhibition, in particular Becoming Richard Burton, and the new television series Wandavision, to changing social attitudes towards disability and inclusivity within the Arts.

We speak to Sioned Williams – one of the curators of the Amgueddfa Cymru exhibition Becoming Richard Burton – about the online exhibition, the pieces that she would like to highlight, and the process of creating a narrative through curation. We also discuss Greg Glover’s article, ‘Disability | Rules of the Playground Do Not Apply’ and Matt Taylor’s article ‘TV | Wandavision | First Impressions’, before highlighting projects and events that you should be looking out for in our ‘What’s on, Wales?’ segment.
