Disability Arts Qualification Anyone?

There is an idea that disability arts is being swallowed up and not being given the opportunity to prosper as disabled artists move towards inclusion in the main stream.

One possible solution to this would be to develop a disability arts qualification (which of itself rings of mainstreaming). But i beleive it is an idea that is worthy of consideration especially as Dolly Sen puts disability arts and disability theory onto the agenda whilst discussing the importance of DAO.

A problem with inclusion into the mainstream is theory is lost to the pursuit of art. Can this be balanced? Is it important?

Your comments would be appreciated?
